Browse our New Zealand Rowing Tours

There are more than a few good reasons why New Zealand’s South Island consistently gets a high ranking in world tourism. While many come to explore our outstanding wilderness walks and landscapes, we take you places that go under the radar – through some of the world’s most extraordinary beauty.

The best of local – it’s our aim to showcase the regional ‘best’ in terms of accommodation, food, wine and local people. We’re a kiwi business, run by kiwis, so know the best environments and have the ability to offer some great alternatives if weather unsuitable for rowing.

We also like to let our rowers do the talking. Read more about what they have to say here.
