Epic adventure tours for 18 to 35 year olds

Our Values

GOOD HUMANS

We believe that incredible things happen when you travel and experience the world with a tight group of likeminded epic humans. Start your journey as strangers, end as a family.

WORLD LEADING

Our experiences will always be provided with an unwavering focus on exceptional quality, with safe, sustainable and responsible travel at the heart of everything we do.

LEAVE ONLY FOOTPRINTS

Care for the planet isn’t just fundamental to our ethos, it’s bigger than that. It’s about respecting our environment and ensuring we look after it for generations of future travellers to enjoy.

ENJOY THE JOURNEY

We have fun. We don’t take ourselves too seriously. Life is one incredible adventure and it’s in our DNA to make the most of every single moment.

Our Passion

We have hunted out all the very best spots to give you the most epic flashpacking small group experience of New Zealand and Australia, allowing you to sit back and take in all that these places have to offer from the comfort of our new, luxury cruisers. We jam-pack our tours full of adventure, like-minded humans between the ages of 18 and 35 years and local guides who’ll show you all of the best on and off-the-beaten track places.

Our Story

Following years working and travelling the globe, and over ten years’ experience creating and then managing renowned sailing holiday companies MedSailors and Yacht Getaways, our three founding Wild Kiwi’s returned home to New Zealand with the intention of bringing affordable flashpacking adventures to their own backyard. Three years later and our passion for travel and our Wild Kiwi family have both grown massively, now roaming to help our guests discover the best hidden gems across New Zealand and Australia.

Recognition

We’re most proud of the amazing feedback we get from our guests, but we’re also humbled to be recognised for our passion for travel by prestigious organisations such as Qualmark and The Westpac Champion Business Awards. We also recently won Tour Radar's Tour of the Year Award for our 'Absolute Aussie' tour in Australia.

Working for us

Do you have a passion for travel? We’re always looking for professional staff and travel lovers who share our enthusiasm about flashpacker-style road trips in New Zealand and Australia. If that sounds like you, get in touch, careers@wildkiwi.com!

Amazing trip! The itinerary is put together well to see all the highlights of the East Coast in two weeks, while still having enough time to indulge in each city’s unique atmosphere.

The bus trips were excellent and traveling with a smaller group was far more fun then the larger tour groups. Got to see many things a long the way with plenty of stops. Would definitely recommend this trip. Made family and friends back home very jealous.

I could go on and on but I believe with other reviews, this company's reputation speaks for itself. Mahalo for a wonderful time. Aloha!
