New Zealand Charity Challenges

With its spectacular landscapes, world-class trekking trails and year-round calendar of adrenalin-pumping outdoor activities, New Zealand could be the perfect choice for your next charity challenge.

Raise money for your favourite cause as you trek, cycle, climb or kayak your way through New Zealand’s pristine wilderness—active volcanoes and snowcapped peaks, dramatic fjords, glaciers and dazzling blue lakes, and a rugged, ever-changing coastline.

Try an alpine climbing course on the remote ridges of the Southern Alps, tackle a challenging ascent of Aoraki/Mount Cook or tramp your way along iconic multi-day walks including the Milford, Routeburn, Tongariro, Abel Tasman and Queen Charlotte tracks.

Try ice climbing on Fox Glacier or Franz Josef Glacier, ride the famous Otago Rail Trail or enjoy one of the world's most scenic cycle routes over Arthur’s Pass and down the South Island’s wild West Coast.

Our charity challenge experts can create a customised itinerary for your group or can match you with one of our upcoming challenges. Get in touch today and start planning your New Zealand adventure for a cause!

A custom made itinerary is the ultimate way to see the world how YOU want. They are created especially for you, giving you complete freedom to choose what you want to see, where you want to go and when you want to do it. If you love our current itineraries but want to customise it privately as a couple, a group of friends, family, club, business or school, you have the freedom to add or remove as many elements as you like to suit the interests of your group. Alternatively, you can start with a blank canvas and create a new and exciting itinerary from scratch! Our well-travelled consultants can give you firsthand suggestions and eliminate any uncertainty with trip planning to ensure you maximise the quality of your experience and get truly off the beaten track. Simply email, phone or visit us to start planning your dream adventure.


No Fees for Charities

Unlike many other charity challenge providers, we do not charge charities service fees to operate a challenge, allowing you to raise more funds.

Custom Challenges

We offer you flexibility to customise a charity challenge to suit your needs and budget. Choose your own destination, departure date and charity.

Responsible Travel

For us it is important that our charity challenges protect the cultures and environments we visit - so sustainability is central to our planning.

An charity challenge for everyone

Our charity challenges range from introductory walks and cycles to multi-activity trips and even the toughest guided walk in New Zealand.

Walks you won't find in any guidebook

While some of our hiking itineraries include the best sections of the more famous walking tracks, we thrive on creating engaging hikes in spectacular surroundings that provide travellers with the excitement that only real off the beaten track opportunities provide.


 

Minimal environmental impact

We reduce the environmental impact of our travel by restricting group size, using fuel efficent vehicles, minimsing the use of aircraft, recyling, composting, avoiding consumerism, using minimal impact huts and bulk buying food supplies.

Support of local economies

We employ local New Zealand guides and crew who provide authentic and expert support and leadership.

Local charity donations

Our annual donations made to the Otago Central Rail Trail Trust is used to fund the continual upgrade of the Rail Trail.
