Haka isn’t your normal tour company with your typical hop-on/hop-off sightseeing on buses of 40-plus tourists. These are true adventures – cultural tours, snow tours, and mountain bike tours – that range from 3-24 days with all the essentials included:
- A passionate Kiwi Guide
- Handpicked cultural experiences
Your stress-free adventure begins with Haka’s passionate, expert guides who know New Zealand like the back of their hand. They are super friendly, have cool nicknames (like Si, Willow, Doddy, Daz!), and love showing off their backyard to the world. Plus, with Haka, “size matters” – i.e., you’ll feel like you’re on an epic road trip with your best friends with groups no larger than 16 per tour. Plus, you’ll get an authentic view of New Zealand as Haka Tours is 100% locally owned and operated.

Take the “Maori Cultural Experience” as part of the 7-Day North Island Adventure Tour. This excursion includes a traditional Maori “Hangi” with food cooked using heated rocks buried in an underground oven, plus traditional songs and dances. Also on this awesome tour, you’ll explore a geyersland with candy colored water and geothermal activity at Wai-O-Tapu Thermal Wonderland, carve your own “Tiki” pendant from bone, and walk Cathedral Cove (from The Chronicles of Narnia movies). Don’t miss awesome add-on adventures, like an underground rafting trip to see the famous “glow-worms” in Waitomo or “Sledging,” which is navigating rivers on specially designed body boards.
If you’re looking to go south for your adventure, then check out the South Island Lick Tour with a stop in lively Queenstown, two nights in Franz Josef with glacial and rain forest scenery, and visits to two World Heritage National Parks. Plus, you’ll also ride the world-famous Tranz Alpine Express train and get a breathless bird’s-eye view with a skydiving excursion.

Of course, that’s only on the itinerary. Another awesome aspect of Haka adventure tours are their surprise stops and flexible itinerary. With only up to 16 peeps on the tour, Haka guides can take you places other guided vacations can’t reach – like a hidden waterfall or a virgin rain forest – and allow you to enjoy the finer parts of the journey, such as a lazy lunch or a bit more exploration time in destination.
And the unique, awesome adventures don’t stop there. Discover New Zealand’s best “off the beaten track” ski fields with a South Island Snow Odyssey or experience a range of best rides across New Zealand with the NZ MTB Dreamer Tour, stretching from Auckland to Queenstown, and encompassing the extreme in-between.
