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.

It is approximately a three and a half hour drive from Auckland. First you need to get onto the Southern Motorway, heading towards Hamilton. Then turn from Highway 1 left onto Highway 2 (towards Mangatawhiri) than taking Highway 25 towards Thames. Pass through Thames and follow the signs to Coromandel, drive through the Township and then head towards Colville (27km). Mahamudra is clearly sign posted on the left just before you enter Colville.
