Our Story

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, Australia and Europe.

Where do I start! Absolutely fantastic tour! The places are all breathtaking, postcard quality views around every corner. I am in love with New Zealand now and can’t wait to be back.

Had the most amazing tour in the south island. I was nervous about travelling solo the first time but such a small group of awesome people made it a great experience and I never felt like I was alone!

Isabella Durham

The itinerary was great, we got to see so much and even the driving days were fun because we got to stop off at so many beautiful and out of the way places.
