Welcome to New Zealand at its Best

“Congratulations on publishing the 2015-16 edition of Organic Explorer. 

The book is a terrific collection of New Zealand eco travel experiences ranging from well-known major operators to hidden gems throughout the country.

It’ll be a great travel companion for anyone exploring New Zealand and wanting to hunt out the best eco experiences on offer. 

I wish you every success with your book”.

Great Barrier Island Eco Experiences offers you a unique journey into nature.

Located in historic Whangaparapara Harbour, with direct access to many pristine walking and mountain bike tracks, including the Aotea Track.

We are Department of Conservation approved concessionaires, and only we can offer you a personalised guided walking or mountain bike tour, with extensive local knowledge of the rugged terrain. As part of our concession we can now offer luxury tent accommodation at any of the beautiful D.o.C. Camgrounds located on the coast of Aotea, or a private location of your choice.
