Founded from a deep passion for the kiwi outdoors, and an intense desire to share it with others, Tuatara Tours has been organising incredible walking and cycling tours across New Zealand and the world for almost 2 decades.
Our staff and guides have organised adventure races, guided groups along ancient pilgrimage routes in Japan, and to monasteries perched high on Bhutanese cliffs.
We also guide many tours through our homeland, showing visitors some of New Zealand’s most secluded and beautiful locations.
All of our tours are fully guided by experts, and include all accommodation, food and luggage transport. Tuatara Tours is perfect for those who want to escape the main centres and explore the depths of the kiwi wilderness with experts.
Our mission is to help as many people as possible explore their environments in our favourite ways – walking and cycling.
All Tuatara Tours staff are Covid-19 double vaccinated.
We require everyone that travels with us on all of our tours to wear a face mask where required and be Covid-19 double vaccinated and also to comply with any other rules and regulations mandated by the New Zealand government
Should your trip be impacted by a Covid-19 related travel restriction that is mandated by either the New Zealand government or any other government, we will either work with you to transfer your trip to a future date at no additional cost, or provide you with a full refund.

“Really enjoyed the sense of having achieved the goal without too much difficulty. The tour was well organised and everything seemed to flow seamlessly. Well done!”
Our passion for our New Zealand home extends far beyond the walking and cycling trails – we have spent almost 2 decades showing off the mountains, beaches and towns of New Zealand, and we have been active in the promotion of environmental protection. We even adopted our very own Tuatara! His name is BP, and he lives at Christchurch’s Orana Wildlife Park.
Meet the experienced, friendly and passionate team that will take care of you on your next adventure.
