MoaTrek itineraries are tailored exclusively for your group’s particular interests. MoaTrek’s customised private tours are unique experiences that capture the essence of New Zealand. Our travellers discover unforgettable places, country hospitality, superb food and fine wines. Getting to know the locals - winemakers, farmers, gardeners and chefs is a memorable part of the experience.
Walking and Hiking
There are hundreds of walking trails all over New Zealand and it's one thing many of our guests tell us they're most looking forward too about coming to New Zealand. Our National Parks at your feet - Abel Tasman, Fiordland Aspiring, Aoraki/Mt Cook, Tongariro, these are just some of the famous names but there are many other undiscovered trails MoaTrek can help you find as well.
Food & Wine
Come along on an inspirational odyssey visiting premier wine and food regions. Our travellers meet the winemakers, taste fine wines at renowned vineyards and enjoy memorable dining with acclaimed chefs. We will create your itinerary around your preferred wine styles and arrange a cooking class with a chef specialising in local and cuisine.
New Zealand’s famous wine regions of the Hawkes Bay, Marlborough and Central Otago are great places to explore. Our coastline’s amazing seafood and fresh produce from our farms will tempt the taste buds of even the most discerning foodie.
Let us know your particular area of interest - history, arts and crafts, music and we will work with our Maori friends in Northland and Rotorua to create the connections that will bring you an intimate and in-depth appreciation of Maori history and culture.
New Zealand is home to passionate gardeners and we have connections throughout the land, from Gardens of National Significance to hidden gems. We have been running specialist garden tours for 20 years and know the best gardens and gardeners in every region. In spring the rhododendrons and peonies are blooming and throughout the year the rare species in our New Zealand native gardens are an enthusiast’s delight. And a memorable highlight of our garden tours is meeting the gardeners themselves, wandering their garden and enjoying their amazing hospitality over a long, private lunch.
These tours are up to a week and focus on one specific region of the country, like the Rhodendron gardens of Taranaki or Canterbury for the spring gardens and festivals.
Farming & Horticulture
Enjoy the warmth and hospitality of our farming hosts lunching in a historic country homestead with fresh produce from the farm gardens. Visit the cowshed at milking time and later take a walk with your hosts around the lake and through the garden’s rare trees, perhaps even fish in nearby streams. High country sheep stations are an iconic symbol of New Zealand’s farming life. Meet the owners and managers who will show you over their land and introduce you to every day working life on a large sheep farm.
Specialist Guided Tours
Among our Kiwi guides we have experts in Geology, New Zealand History, Farming and Botany. One of the best things about travelling with a guide is to take advantage of a lifetime of knowledge, if your group has a special interest area we will match our Kiwi guide to your desires.
