The ‘Takahe’ is a wilderness hiking trip. While it’s not designed to be a scenic tour of the South Island’s luxury hotels, it features more creature comforts than some of our other trips and you’ll certainly feel like you’re hiking in style! You’ll stay in some wonderful places in the remote locations we take you. You’ll stay in comfortable bed and breakfasts, lodges, apartments and hotels for the most part.

Terms & Conditions

The fare includes just about everything, specifically:
• All guiding services. We have two guides per trip, a lead guide/driver and a co-guide/chef. On our smallest trips, one of our most
experienced guides will look after you.
• Comfortable accommodation for the entire period you are with us. We can also organise pre and post-trip accommodation, if you like.
• Breakfast, lunch and dinner on most days, as indicated, with many delicious meals prepared by your guides, who are adept at
catering for all dietary requirements. In places like Queenstown there’s a wide variety of restaurants and we’ve found people prefer to check out the options on their own. Alcohol is not included, although we do spring a few drinks here and there!
• All activities described in the itineraries including hiking, kayaking, biking and rafting, except the optional extra activities that are
available at additional cost.
