Message from Tourism NZ

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.

"I have been using OE every single time, when travelling throughout New Zealand. OE fills a niche in the tourism market and does it perfectly by offering high quality and healthy alternatives to organic-minded persons. Thank you very much for your commitment and great work. I hope to see more of OEs in other countries in the future!"
