About Active Adventures

Welcome to Active Adventures - we’re delighted to have you here! Getting you into the most beautiful locations on Earth, under your own steam, is what our adventures are all about and at the heart of everything we do.

Active Adventures creates inspiring fully guided small-group adventures in the most breathtaking regions of the world. Starting almost 30 years ago with hiking trips in New Zealand, Active Adventures has grown to create its own distinctive style of outdoors adventure travel with 85+ itineraries in six continents and more than 25 countries.   

Unique itineraries have been perfected from decades of experience, and cater for solo travelers, couples, and friend groups as well as trips specifically designed for families too. You'll enjoy exclusive accommodations, top-notch dining and fun activities (like hiking, biking, kayaking, rafting and more), showcasing the best of each destination. Guests are encouraged to not only challenge themselves physically but also to take a deep dive in the local way of life in communities visited. 

Our team are people just like you - people who love hiking and the outdoors, have a passion for travel and a bucket list of exciting adventure vacations as long as their arm. You'll experience exceptional hospitality and personal attention to detail with our passionate and professional guides, dedicated to sharing the best parts of the planet with you: New Zealand, Europe, Himalayas, Africa, Peru, Patagonia, Ecuador and the Galapagos Islands, as well as North America's National Parks with its sister brand Austin Adventures.
