    About Haka Tours

    Haka Tours was born over a decade ago from the dreams of one man who wanted to reimagine how small group adventure tours were run. From the very first tour in June 2007 until now there’s been no looking back, and 12 years on we’re incredibly proud to be regarded as New Zealand’s leading small group adventure operator. As we’ve grown, we’ve stayed true to our core values which remain the key to our success. Ultimately, when you travel with Haka, you’re not travelling with a multinational corporate or a big international brand, but with an authentic, locally-owned business that puts you, the customer, at the centre of everything we do.

    Story

    For those of you booked onto an upcoming tour, you can be reassured that our Haka buses are thoroughly sanitised before each tour, and following the World Health Organisation (WHO) advice, we are undertaking additional measures to adhere to the latest hygiene practices. These include cleaning & disinfecting including door handles, seats and overhead lockers on a regular basis. Our processes will be updated based on the latest guidelines. Our Haka Lodges are also undertaking additional measures to meet the WHO guidelines.


    We request our guests to follow the hygiene guidelines from WHO including the regular washing of hands. Hand sanitiser will also be readily available.


    Please refer to the World Health Organisation (WHO) or the New Zealand Covid-19 website for any additional guidelines.

    Why Haka Tours

    Travel with the Locals
    We are one of the few owned and operated New Zealand Tour companies. We are a small team that loves New Zealand and loves what we do. We really do get a buzz when we see our customers having a unique experience.

    We get it, after all, we’re Travellers ourselves
    Our core philosophy is that small group travel makes for the best experience. It’s why we limit the size of our groups to just 16. It’s an intimate small group journey, which transforms from bus trip to road trip, complete with like-minded travellers that become your new best mates.

    Size Matters
    Because the trip of a life time is not a bus pass with 40 other people, getting herded from one place to another. We don’t herd you anywhere. (after all you are not a sheep). It means that while the big group must stick to the main road, we can easily get to those magical, hard to reach places, such as secluded beaches or dramatic cliff tops. It means that while the big group must stick to the main road, we can easily get to those magical, hard to reach places, such as secluded beaches or dramatic cliff tops.

    We don’t have Bus Drivers
    We have fully fledged, super passionate tour guides that do more than drop you off near a town centre with a list of hostels you could stay at. They are our heroes and because of the smaller group size, they quickly end up becoming a trusted friend, in a way that simply cannot happen on the big bus.

    Who travels with us?
    So, while there is no typical Haka Tours guest - we've found that over the years, they are all like-minded - and this is why our guests make lifelong friends while on our tours. Of course, they are individuals with different tastes. But the one, crucial thing they have in common is attitude. Without exception, our guests want adventure, spontaneity and fun. They want more than just amazing photos. They want to soak up New Zealand, and absorb all that this beautiful country has to offer. Like you, they want to travel with great people. They are open minded. They know that age is just a number, and that attitude is far more important. They converge from all over Earth to have a unique and incredible experience. Whilst these are "adventure" tours, we don't require a high level of fitness. There is nothing compulsory on our trips other than getting on the tour bus. Whilst some people want adrenalin hit, others prefer to soak up the sun, enjoy the beautiful scenery or immerse themselves in our culture. As with any tour operator, we don’t suit everyone. If you expect a military-style organised trip, or a giant bus/coach packed full of passengers you are probably best to look elsewhere. Otherwise, get started by choosing a tour.

    Questions & Answers

    • I’m travelling on my own – can I join one of your tours?

      Yes! Around 70% of our guests are solo travellers and they have a great time, meeting a bunch of like-minded people that quickly become great friends.
    • Is there a single booking supplement?

      No. We don’t have a single supplement - around 70% of our guests are single travellers.
    • Do I need to speak English in order to join one of your tours?

      Haka Tours is 100% Kiwi therefore your guide will be English speaking. We have a number of nationalities on tour meaning the guides are used to tour members not being 100% fluent in English. Some basic English helps so you can understand the guide’s commentary and instructions. By the time you leave the tour you will be speaking Kiwi English – sweet as bro!
    • What are the recommended ages?

      We have guests that are in their late teens to their 70’s but the average ages is around 25-35. More important than age is attitude – we have found over the years that if you have a thirst for adventure then age is no barrier. The minimum age of joining a tour is 18 years old. Sometimes the group may head out to a bar where everyone needs to be 18 years old, and New Zealand has strict alcohol policies.
    • How far in advance should I make a booking?

      We recommend booking as soon as you know you can travel, and have decided on which tour you would like to go on. Some of our tours can be quite popular so it’s best to secure your spot as soon as possible.
    • Do I need travel insurance?

      We strongly recommend taking out travel insurance once you have booked your tour. It is best to book travel insurance in your home country.
    • What’s included in the price?

      All our tours include the following * Transport * Passionate kiwi guide * Accommodation * Breakfast Check each tour page as each tour has specific inclusions that are part of the price – a few examples are bone carving, a Hangi or ride on the famous Tranz Alpine Express train.
