Aspiring Guides - Backcountry Treks

The wild and remote nature of New Zealand's landscape and weather means that for most people, wilderness hiking is limited to a few well established walking trails. While these are often called "The Great Walks" they are not the best walks!

Take The Road Less Traveled

We guide only small groups (max 5) on our New Zealand multi-day hiking and trekking safaris. Trips range from seriously tough treks like our 8 day Gillespie Rabbit Pass Alpine Traverse, widely regarded as New Zealand's hardest guided trek, to easier walks suitable for the whole family, like our 4 day Upper Wilkin Experience. 

Regardless of whether you're an experienced hiker and want to challenge yourself on New Zealand's hardest hiking trails or glaciers,  or you want to share a true wilderness experience with your family - we have a Trek to suit you.

Aspiring Guides is closed for summer 2021 due to Covid-19 however we will be up and running again in winter 2022.
