Kia Ora and welcome to MoaTrek!

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. 

Relax and enjoy every single moment, secure in the knowledge that absolutely everything is taken care of, just follow your 'Kiwi Guide' for one magical memory after another - like sailing on an ancient geothermal lake on your way to natural hot springs or soaring high above the grand peaks of Fiordland.  We’ll spoil you with the very best New Zealand food and wine, you’ll make friends with the locals at home hosted lunches, and at the end of each memorable day, sleep soundly in hand picked accommodation.

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.  From planning your big trip, right through to finding that special Kiwi gift once you’re here, we’ll look after you every step of the way.
