Eco Tours in New Zealand 2024/2025

From the beautiful Franz Josef Glacier to the stunning beaches and national parks of Abel Tasman, eco tours in New Zealand are gaining traction. New Zealand eco tours are designed for travelers looking to explore the country’s abundance of natural beauty all while leaving minimal impact behind, in part by offsetting the carbon impacts as part of the tour package. If you’re looking for a New Zealand eco-adventure tour, you might go white water rafting around Taupo, or surf on the Raglan coast with a local, giving back to the community and staying in a sustainable surf lodge. Whether you’re looking for New Zealand group tours or New Zealand guided tours, there are plenty of options for travelers looking to explore in a sustainable and eco-friendly way.

Check out some of our favorite New Zealand eco tours below.

Fantastic!
5 - Excellent
  • Celina Rios
“This tour is a great way to see the major sights in New Zealand. Many optional activities offer for an additional price which you can choose to participate in or not. Our tour guide George, made the trip very memorable. He loves his country and his enthusiasm was contagious. Our group started as strangers and left as friends.”

“Fantastic jam packed three weeks in the wonderful New Zealand. The trip was more than I could have hoped for, New Zealand would be a great back drop for any visit.”
A Wonderful Trip

  • Jonalyn
“Geoff is an awesome guy! - and his travel agency. He worked with me to plan this trip over 3 1/2 years ago. Due to COVID it was postponed twice and, as time went on, I made changes and he adapted and re-worked the itinerary excellently. He made great suggestions and listened to my ideas with a great sense of humor and seriousness, booking the perfect Bed & Breakfast Inns in Christchurch and Lake Te Anau and other pristine locations. The tour he booked for me to see Hobbiton was the best choice, including a delicious lunch buffet! There was no hassle over prices, they were very reasonable and kept within my budget.”
