Private Guiding

It's all about you

You are here: Our Walks » Private Guided

Private Guided Options Are Available...

GWNZ Routeburn Track 2Guided Walks NZ offers an a-la-carte selection of stunning and memorable walks and we also offer all of these as privately guided trips.

Our guides are selected for their intimate and extensive knowledge of the entire region that we can walk in. This means we can tailor a bespoke, privately guided walk to your specifications for singles, couples or families or as you prefer.

If you’d rather an easier guided walk, an array of locations to suit your requirements, or if the highest of the high country appeals to your interests, helicopter transport is easy to arrange, offering us tens of thousands of hectares of totally unspoiled terrain for your private enjoyment.
