Welcome to New Zealand at its Best


Organic Explorer has carved out a name for itself as a comprehensive resource for travellers seeking eco-friendly experiences in New Zealand.

Through its website and travel guides, it has provided travellers with an abundance of information about everything from organic cafe's and eco-lodges to nature tourism and Maori cultural experiences.

But Organic Explorer’s efforts have gone further than just informing travellers about the variety of eco-friendly experiences available in New Zealand. It has also helped raise international awareness of New Zealand as a visitor destination.

Eco-tourism experiences feature on many international visitors’ holiday plans and that will only increase Organic Explorer’s relevance to visitors and local eco-tourism businesses.

Today the staff at Harvest helped me out when I left my wallet at work (having driven 30mins to get to the shop). They offered to let me use their phone which I did to get my credit card details and they processed my sale. This kindness saved me an hours drive and a lot of stress.

Thank you so much. :)
