Guided Walks - Adventure Walks Te Anau
Guided Walks - Adventure Walks
If you want to go completely off the beaten track, view amazing birdlife and wildlife and see a part of New Zealand that only a few have ever seen, then the Adventure Walks Guided Walk is for you!
You will experience some of the most spectacular scenery in New Zealand as your journey takes you on scenic flights, aboard boats and along tracks that are so isolated that you’re more likely to encounter wild animals than other people. You will see majestic mountains, crystal clear lakes and secluded camping spots within Fiordland’s World Heritage Area. These areas are highly exclusive to Adventure Walks and you will be one of a few lucky people to experience them.
If you love the outdoors, adventure, have a desire to explore the untouched parts of New Zealand and have a reasonable level of fitness, you will adore one of these tour options:

Everything Travel Group Review
The guide; Andy, offered for me to come out and explore some of the beautiful walks in Te Anau (about 2.5hrs from Queenstown). The walk was one of the most amazing walks i have done. Not only were the views out of this world, the track itself was forged by us as we walked carefully through the forest and up to the view points high above our departure point.
Our guide used GPS to plot our walk as there were no visible walking tracks. You really did feel part of nature, and felt like you were the first people to ever set foot in these remote areas.
The boat ride into the start of the walk and the helicopter flight at the end of the trip just added even more wow factor to the entire trip. These guys have a wealth of knowledge of the natural surroundings. If you want to walk somewhere unique, somewhere you would never find on your own, with expert guides and commentary then Adventure Walks is the trip of a lifetime.
