Looking to experience the very best from Kiwi culture? Do you relish the idea of spontaneous exploration with small groups of like-minded people and demand more from an overland tour than just a bus pass? If you’ve answered ‘yes’ to any of the above questions then overland holidays in New Zealand with Haka Tours will tick all these boxes and more.
In many ways, New Zealand is the ideal destination for an overland holiday. Spectacular scenery and natural environments are complemented by unique island life and culture, creating the perfect mix of experience and adventure. And if you’re planning on going, then it makes sense to go with an award-winning company independently ranked as the number one tour operator in New Zealand.
Haka Tours was founded in 2006 with one goal in mind: to create amazing experiences where travellers could immerse themselves in the real New Zealand. And they’ve been doing it better than anyone else ever since.
What makes Haka tours different?
New Zealand is a country that’s always been popular with travellers. Its stunning and completely unique landscapes provide the perfect opportunity for both adventure sports and exploration. So, there are unsurprisingly a few companies offering tours around the islands.
However, there are a few key reasons why Haka stands out and why they’re considered the best. Firstly and most importantly, you won’t be treated as just another number. Haka tours offer the personal approach from start to finish. From the moment you enquire until the end of your tour, they’ll make sure that all your questions are answered in detail and that you’re made to feel as welcome and part of the family as possible.
On some other tours, you’ll feel like you’re just another passenger on the bus. Sitting for hours on end with 50 other people as the countryside and real life experiences pass you by. With Haka you’ll travel in small groups and you’ll be able to experience overland holidays in New Zealand up close and personal.
You’ll be pushed to your limits and thrown into situations that will enthral and excite. It’s all about creating life-long memories and unique experiences. Overland tours should be more than about simply stopping for photo opportunities (although there’ll be plenty of those too).
All their tours have local Kiwi guides who know and understand the area, and you’ll also be treated to the most interesting and unique accommodation.
The Haka tours
There’s a choice of three New Zealand wide tours, covering both islands. Choose between the 16 day AMPLIFIED tour, the 24 day EPIC and the 9 day SUPERCHARGED tour. They all come with all accommodation, transport, breakfast, guided tours of every location and everything else you would expect from award-winning overland holidays in New Zealand. The tours cost $2,399, $3,599 and $1,599 NZD respectively.
Depending on which tour you choose, you get to experience activities like a gondola ride in Queenstown, the world famous Tranz Alpine Railway and carving your very own ‘tiki’ pendant, amongst many others.
Each tour comes with its own set of surprises and unique experiences and they are all ideal for travellers over the age of 18 and for all fitness levels. It’s your attitude that matters and anyone open to new ideas and adventure will really enjoy the tour.
Also available are tours of both the North and South Island individually. The 7 day North and South Island tours include accommodation, transport and the rest, and will cost $1,299 NZD. A longer 12 day tour of the South Island will set you back $2,149 NZD, starting in Christchurch and ending in Wellington.
Add-ons and activities
Of course, Haka tours also know that everyone is different and might want to create and customize their own adventure. Which is why there is a list of add-on activities you can enjoy.
You can experience black water rafting at Waitomo, a glacier heli-hike, extreme jet boating and skydiving, amongst a list of others. Simply check out the Haka tours add-ons and start creating your own adventure. Prices vary according to the activity but as with all Haka Tours adventures, they will be hard to beat in terms of value for money.
If you are tempted by overland holidays in New Zealand, then it makes sense to go with the best. And that makes Haka Tours your first choice.
