Active Adventures Roll Out Innovative New Interactive Trip Maps

Story by Active Adventures

Posted: November 11, 2014

Based in New Zealand, Active Adventures have been running multi-day hiking, biking and sea kayaking trips for 20 years – in New Zealand, Nepal, Patagonia, Peru, Ecuador and the Galapagos Islands. People considering joining Active for their next adventure vacation have a new and exciting tool at their disposal; each trip now has a fully interactive map allowing you to gain a much better appreciation for the tour and where it goes.

Leading adventure tour operator, Active Adventures, maintain the philosophy that nothing beats the ‘boots on the ground’ destination experience. After all, what they do best is deliver exceptional, fully-guided adventure tours in the destinations they know and love. But, they figure ‘why not push the boundaries of what’s possible with the pre-trip experience as well’… The result? Interactive maps that offer more detail and exciting potential than anything else in the online adventure travel world.

Each tour now has an interactive map, powered by Google Maps, that allows the user to zoom in and out, click on the corresponding daily itinerary to see a particular area in more detail, and switch between standard view and satellite. Wondering what it looks like from Key Summit on the Routeburn Track – on day 10 of the Ultimate South Island Adventure ‘Rimu’ tour – drag the ‘street view’ yellow figure to the green marker on the map and you’ll get a 360 degree view. Likewise, try the same thing at Everest Base Camp – day 11 of our ‘EBC’ tour!

The future for the Active Adventures interactive maps looks bright, with plans to over-lay client photos, videos and trip survey quotes. If you’re now taking a virtual tour on one of our trips, let us know if you’d like to chat to Matty or Jodi about your travel plans and our trip availability.
