NEW ZEALAND TOURS
Spectacular expert-led journeys into the wild: discover breathtaking landscapes, endemic wildlife, Maori heritage, and thrilling adventures
Update on our Uganda Tours
- October 2023
We are deeply saddened by the recent, tragic attack in Uganda. Our hearts are with the victims and their loved ones during this difficult time. Out of respect and caution, Wildfoot Travel has taken the decision to pause all tours to Uganda for now.
Safety is, and will always be, our number one priority, and we hope to return responsibly when the situation allows.

About New Zealand
Wildfoot’s itineraries take you to the Land of the Long White Cloud to explore its spectacular blend of ancient and contemporary culture, unending picture-perfect landscape and a mind-blowing range of birdlife and wildlife. With the beauty of a film set and an array of adventurous opportunities to delight even the most ardent of thrill-seekers, this dramatically diverse country offers an authentic experience to remember.
There are so many awe-inspiring natural wonders packed into a compact area, it’s hard to know which way to turn. That’s where we come in. Lush rainforests, deep icy fjords, shimmering turquoise lakes, remote pristine beaches, snow-capped peaks and thousands of kilometres of rugged coastline are in contrast to the vibrant cultural overload of the country’s capital, Wellington, the art deco character of Napier, French-inspired Akaroa and Scottish-influenced Dunedin - but somehow it just works.
Absolutely made for small ship expeditions and cruises, travelling by water is the most wonderful way to explore.The geography comprises the more populated North Island, Stewart Island and the spectacular South Island with its breath-taking Lord of the Rings landscape. The blend of traditional Maori culture, nature and high-octane outdoor activities brings out the best in any adventurous traveller, with an ambience that’s completely unique to the land the Maoris call Aotearoa.

Helping you build your perfect holiday
When to Visit
Peak summer months are from December to February, which is the most pleasant time for a New Zealand tour, although most cruises start in early October and finish at the end of April. From July (the first month of winter), there is very little cruise activity.
One of the best ways to discover the country is by water. Accompanied by an experienced team of destination experts you’ll explore the incredible coastal highlights and pack more into your trip.
Combine your Trip with Other Destinations
Wildfoot’s selection of cruises give you the flexibility to combine a New Zealand tour with nearby countries that offer just as much in the way of wildlife and incredible scenery. You could combine with Australia, Papua New Guinea, Vanuatu and even Antarctica!
We highly recommend the spectacular sub-Antarctic Islands for adventure lovers. Comprising the Bounty Islands, the Snares, Campbell Island, Macquarie Island, the Antipodes and the Auckland Islands, you’ll explore dramatic landscapes and encounter unique and prolific wildlife.
Every vessel-based trip Wildfoot offers includes a choice of excursions at each destination. Accompanied by experienced guides you can enjoy guided walks and hikes, visits to areas of interest, city tours, unforgettable shore visits, thrilling Zodiac cruises and much more.
