Bucket List Experiences

New Zealand is so fortunate that, although a small nation, it has a huge range of geographic environments which enable a wealth of contrasting scenery and activities. From Fiordland and its awesome glacial valleys to the volcanic peaks of Te Ika a Maui (North Island), from lush pastoral landscapes to barren mountain plateaus, from vineyards to kiwifruit orchards and vibrant cities to lonely forest huts. We can fulfil those dreams, meet your bucket list desires and tick off those experiences which have remained elusive … until now! 

For many people one of the main reasons to travel to New Zealand is to try these “once in a lifetime” experiences like Jet Boating, Heli Hiking on a Glacier or Whale Watching in the South Pacific Ocean. This is a guide to these Special Experiences you can experience on one of our Small Group Tours.

When I get to New Zealand I’m going to …

Indulge! Indulge those long held dreams to go to places and do things I’ve dreamt about for years. And now you can.

New Zealand has a vast array of places and activities that are on the bucket lists of so many travellers and a comprehensive New Zealand tour itinerary caters for so many of these. Places and activities that people, who have worked many years, dreamed many dreams … and seen many sunrises! … can now make these dreams come true on Aotearoa (New Zealand), the Land of the Long White Cloud.

To be part of a Maori hangi (feast), to fly over spectacular mountains and deep, glacial valleys, to raise a glass amongst the vineyards of one of the world’s best sauvignon producing regions, to Jet Boating amongst snow-clad mountains or hike along golden sand beaches – that bucket list can be considerably shortened after a trip to New Zealand.

For those venturing to the Bay of Islands, North of Auckland, the launch trip out to Cape Brett and the exhilarating rush as the boat manoeuvres carefully through the narrow Hole-in-The-Rock, is an experience to be remembered for a lifetime.

But it is just one of many moments that our visitors come for and will treasure for life. At MoaTrek we know that when our guests arrive in New Zealand they are open to new experiences, new challenges and bring a sense of adventure often suppressed in the confines of ‘home’. So here they can indulge those bucket list wishes in a safe, controlled environment with activities that are within their orbit – ‘tho probably not the bungy jumping and skydives of the backpacker set!

For many of our guests, sand boarding on the dunes at Hokianga is something they would never have dreamed about doing until they got here, then they see the golden sand, hear the delights of others and they too want to be part of it, shrieking and screaming down the slopes and into the warm waters for a wet landing!
