New Zealand Adventures with a Private Guide

Alpine Adventures specialises in privately guided luxury tours that you won't see anywhere else for people who dream big and demand the best. I understand that luxury travel is as much about sharing extraordinary places and experiences as it is about flexibility and personal attention, so I personally create and guide each adventure myself in New Zealand's South Island.

I'll show you the remarkable places you wouldn't discover, and often couldn't experience, on your own and deliver you back safely to tell the tale! (Lots more reasons to choose Alpine Adventures here.)

Whether you’re searching for something different to do in Queenstown or you’re looking for the right private guide to accompany you throughout the South Island, you've come to the right place. I’ve been exploring the backcountry for more than 25 years now and would love to share my passion for the outdoors and my expertise with you, no matter what type of unique adventures you're craving. My itineraries always include expert safety management and gourmet picnics and often include (but are certainly not limited to) helicopter and limousine transfers, a private chef on location and access to private high country stations.

Contact me for help choosing the perfect tour for you or to begin customising your one-of-a-kind luxury New Zealand adventure today.
