MoaTrek 2020 New Zealand Travel Advisory

25 Jun 2020

This is our news stream with the latest travel information and updates for international travellers on our MoaTrek New Zealand Small Group tours. For anyone booked on our tours with specific questions please get in touch with our team directly.


6 October - We’re about to kick off a full season of small group New Zealand tours

Globally New Zealand has been lauded for its Covid-19 response and rightly so as we’ve escaped the worst of the pandemic with life continuing much as normal albeit with increased safety measures, embraced by Kiwis, to combat Covid-19.

This also means we are running a full season of tours starting in mid October. Kiwis are getting on board in droves and we’ve sold out over 80% of all our summer tours.

We’re stunned by the demand from New Zealanders for our tours and our Kiwi Guide team can’t wait to get back out on the road with a small group of like minded travellers to show them the best bits (and the secret bits) of our amazing country.

If you’re thinking of joining one of our tours in the future, you can view them all here.

22 August - 2020 TripAdvisor Travellers' Choice Award Winner!

While we’ve been busy planning a full season of tours for Kiwis we received some great news from Tripadvisor. We’ve been awarded a 2020 Travellers’ Choice Award - we are in the top 10% of attractions worldwide.

Now, more than ever, you need to choose a company you can trust when you travel. This award is based on our travellers' reviews and you can read our Tripadvisor reviews here.

24 June 2020 - MoaTrek Travel Update

We are looking forward to welcoming you back when our borders open up again with no restrictions. New Zealand's response to the pandemic is among the most successful in the world and to keep our community safe everyone arriving here must go into managed isolation or quarantine for 14 days. Although this situation is fluid, it’s difficult to make plans for the immediate future but that doesn’t mean you can’t have a holiday to look forward to. Many guests are choosing to travel in our 21/22  or 22/23 season and all our departure dates until April 2023 are on our website, please contact us for details. 

We’ve been here since 1971 and are very proud to have delivered amazing New Zealand travel experiences and memories for thousands of people throughout the decades. As a generational family business we are well established as a small group tour operator in both the international and domestic markets. Right now while global travel is on hold our team is focused on operating our well-known brand of unique regional tours (MoaTours) for Kiwis, our locals, who are making plans to discover with us our country’s special places.

One thing we are sure of is that when our borders reopen the sooner you can come to visit us the better. It will be a fantastic opportunity to relax and enjoy everything we have to offer with wide, open spaces and our renowned beauty spots almost completely to yourselves.

Thank you for your understanding in these unprecedented times. We look forward to welcoming you to a refreshed and almost untouched New Zealand.
