Kia Ora / Hello / Guten Tag / Gruezi
Welcome to the “LAND OF THE LONG WHITE CLOUD”
What’s in a moment…..
Is it the moment you dare to dream of a world less ordinary? The can’t-wait-to-explore moment when you embark on a new adventure? Perhaps it’s the moment you connect with a complete stranger, the moment you find familiarity in a foreign place or the moment you laugh so hard your stomach aches.
No matter your magic moment, we want you to share it with us. The head-turners, the jaw-droppers the eye-openers. The moment when you grasp what really matters.
Where the early Maori locals lived and European settlers travelled. You will be travelling into the magical world of misty mornings clouds and awakening forests.
The hidden History and places of interest….
With times gone buy as you travel meeting local people and form new friendships

Our Tour is unique different and fun…
As our mail run begins, from picking you up at your accommodation, we continue on our adventure in our air conditioned Mini Bus where you can sit and relax with awesome views.
The first stop is the breath taking lookout at the gentle Annie, from there we travel through the pastures of the Maori Land embracing the legends of time.
The name Land of the Long White Cloud, mist covering the beautiful scenic landscapes, the cliffs far below and a glimpse of Mount Ruapehu if Mother Nature allows, will not disappoint you.
Sharing the road with sheep or a farmer with his working dogs and meeting with one of our local people will be a highlight for the day…..
Whether on a bike, in the Van, or on foot this road has something to suit every explorer.
We stop along the River for a Morning Tee stretching the legs and catching up with interesting traveling gossip.
