Point of difference

Trail Adventures are located at the scenic mid-trail township of Omarama.

It sounds so cheesy when we say it out loud but when we sat down to work out what makes the Trail Adventures service different, it really was that we’re a small family business and we do our best to ensure each one of our customers gets a personalised experience – you’re never just a number to us.

At the heart of the Trail Adventures tours and service is the genuine love of the outdoors and a need to share the incredible New Zealand countryside, sucking in fresh air and soaking in some Vitamin D while enjoying first-rate hospitality on the trail less travelled.
