Touring

A trip to New Zealand is not something people do everyday and what sets Alpine Hunting Adventures apart from other outfitters is our passion to make your entire experience here the best it can be! Our Alpine Hunting personal guides can arrange an itinerary at short notice depending on what you want to do. You have the option of day trips from Alpine Lodge or (the most popular), a 3 night end of hunt tour through some of New Zealand's best attractions and memorable scenery on your way back to Auckland International Airport. Your decision to take in any tours can be made when you've settled in at the Lodge ... there's no pressure!
