New Zealand Awaits welcomes all women travellers who seek authentic and immersive experiences in stunning New Zealand. As true local experts, we create customised itineraries for self-drive travellers and run small group tours ourselves. We are also proud to be New Zealand’s only LGBTQI+ travel specialist.

In Covid, we have developed some trips for women who are in New Zealand – shorter trips (and a couple of longer ones) to encourage local women to explore their backyard.


We know from experience that travel is transformative when deep connections with nature and local people are part of the experience. As a New Zealand based in-inbound tour operator we have partnerships with the best locals in New Zealand who offer incredible authentic ‘Kiwi’ experiences in breathtaking natural settings. We spend time with them on our small group tours, and we connect you with them if you’re self-driving. Our extensive relationships with locals throughout our country is what makes us unique.


Our tours are a mix of soft and thrilling adventure, hiking, kayaking, sailing, jetboating, scenic flights, biking, comfortable and unique lodgings, excellent cuisine, and time spent with locals. Exploring a new country, culture, and people with other like-minded travellers, and a New Zealand female guide, leads to deep and lasting memories and friendships.

For independent travellers we match your interests to the endless choices available in New Zealand: biking, golf, fishing, wine tours, sailing, overnight cruises, glacier heli-hiking, glamping, wildlife, glowworm caves, gourmet dining, gardens, geothermal regions, volcano trekking, Lord or the Rings experiences, meeting LGBTQI locals… and more!

Customised Tours

Whether you’re a solo traveller, a couple, a few friends, or a large group, we can design a trip for you. We listen to your desires and dreams and, combined with our extensive local knowledge, we create the experience of a lifetime. You can self-drive, or we can be your personal guide while you’re here. Let us take care of all the planning, bookings, and every last detail for a relaxed, stress-free experience.

Self Drive Itineraries  – These are expertly created self-drive trip itineraries designed specifically for independent travellers.

Private Guide also available on request
