New Zealand's spectacular landscape and diverse scenery are a magnet for walkers and nature lovers from all over the world, attracting thousands of visitors each year. Independent New Zealand specialist Kirra Holidays range of unique guided walks and adventures offer an unparalleled opportunity to experience the ultimate New Zealand holiday, with choices to suit all levels of fitness.tona
Kirra Holidays is one of only two UK companies that are eligible to book New Zealand's premium guided walks product, Ultimate Hikes. These world-class hiking adventures vary from single day guided walks to iconic multi-day treks that combine the best of New Zealand's walks, including the scenic 55-kilometre Milford Track, frequently called 'the finest walk in the world.' Another Ultimate Hike is the award-winning Routeburn Track which is a three day, two night alpine walk through two national parks, with stunning vistas of sweeping valleys below, majestic peaks above and million dollar views around every corner.
In addition to the Ultimate Hikes, Kirra offer many other tours and adventures ranging from one-day guided walks through to six-day mountain treks into untouched wilderness. For example, the lesser known Kaikoura Wilderness Walkway has breathtaking scenery which includes the beautiful mountain ‘Te Ao Whekere’, a Maori name which literally translates as ‘World of the Gods’.
With the Fox Glacier ice adventure, accessed by a spectacular helicopter ride, it is possible to climb a mountain, explore a glacier and stay overnight in a historic hut, all within twenty-four hours. Meanwhile, the Landsborough Wilderness Experience encompasses a three day river trip to untouched, unspoilt and remote areas which have only been visited by a privileged few.
For those interested in volcanoes, the three night Tongariro and Ruapehu Crater Walk will leave a lasting impression. Three active volcanoes dominate the Tongariro National Park and the landscape is peppered with the different coloured and shaped craters, scoured volcanic rocks, mountain springs and brightly coloured emerald lakes.
Meanwhile, the Queen Charlotte Track Ultimate Adventure offers one day of hiking, one day of sea kayaking and another day mountain biking in the beauty and magic of the Marlborough Sounds.
A popular North Island adventure is the 4 day/3 night 'Wow Coromandel' Kiwi Dundee Adventure tour. A photographer's dream, it includes magnificent scenic walks into untracked wilderness, exploration of old gold mines, a visit to the world famous Cathedral Cove and Hot Water Beach, a trip to the thermal wonderland of Rotorua - and much much more!
