Have you been dreaming of visiting New Zealand for years?  Looking for something special for that ‘once in a lifetime’ trip?  Want to see the very best of New Zealand in a small friendly group?  Then let's talk... 

Hi, we’re MoaTrek and since the 1970s, we’ve been sharing our favourite holiday spots with visitors to New Zealand on our small group tours.  We grew up here and have been exploring the country since we were kids - and now we’ve bottled a lifetime of Kiwi holiday memories into our tours.  From North to South, you won’t miss a thing - Milford Sound, Queenstown, the Bay of Islands, Abel Tasman, Rotorua, Tongariro, the West Coast Glaciers and Aoraki Mt Cook - plus a few of our secret spots you may not know so well, but many people tell us they were their favourites.

We know what really makes any trip extra special, we’ll introduce you to people we’re lucky to call our mates - guardians of ‘Tane Mahuta’ Lord of the Forest and hear legends from guides who were literally born into Maanakitanga (hospitality) and Kaitiakitanga (guardianship).  MoaTrek is a family owned Kiwi company, started in 1971 and run by mother and son team Ena and Miles - with a few more ‘extended’ family around these days too and of course our wonderful 'Kiwi Guides'.  From planning your big trip, right through to finding that special Kiwi momento once you’re here, we’ll look after you every step of the way.

  • You'll learn so much about New Zealand, our Kiwi Guides are walking encyclopedias, if there's anything you want to know just ask!
  • They'll take care of all the driving, checking in, activity bookings, you name it. You're here to enjoy yourself so leave all the work to them.
  • Our guides are the best in the business, with years of experience in guiding and life. They're all first aid trained and have the full backup support of our team 24 hours a day.

We think if you're coming all this way then you deserve the extra care and attention you can only get in a small group, it's the only way to see New Zealand.

  • You'll get to know your fellow travellers, many lifelong friendships have started on our tours
  • Lots of time and attention from your guide
  • Flexibility to do your own thing. Talk to us about anything you really want to see or do in New Zealand, if it's possible we'll help you make it happen
  • Get off the beaten track, big bus tours simply can't go down some of the little country roads we do

When you're travelling, do you like to travel with a locally owned business or an overseas corporate? MoaTrek was started in 1971 by Ena Hutchinson, who's still very much hands on today, and is joined by her son Miles Clark and the rest of the MoaTrek family. We're all Kiwis and grew up here enjoying a lifetime of summer holiday memories, which we've bottled into our small group tours. Your trip is important to all of us, from the minute you start talking to us about coming to visit, until the moment we say goodbye to you at the (sad) end of your trip! We love sharing our country with you.
