New Zealand Adventure Tours

There’s beautiful... and then there’s New Zealand beautiful. On Backroads’ New Zealand biking, hiking and adventure tours, discover the best of the best. The South Island’s scenery is simply massive, with the dramatic Tasman Sea, stunning national parks, the towering Southern Alps and the most active glaciers anywhere on the planet.  The North Island welcomes you with heavenly white-sand beaches, dense forests, geysers and hot springs. But don’t just take our word for it—join us on an adventure tour in New Zealand and discover the wonders of this one-of-a-kind country for yourself. 

We’ve been traveling here for a long time, and our active New Zealand tours are the best way to discover these two unforgettable islands. Whether you’re multi-adventuring from Auckland to Hawke’s Bay on the North Island or hiking off-the-beaten-path tracks on the South Island from Christchurch to Queenstown, these New Zealand trips are the perfect way to explore the islands: actively and at your own pace. With easygoing options for travelers who want to take it slow, but still enjoy the magic of active travel, it’s never been easier to discover the landscapes and culture on a New Zealand tour with Backroads.
