What an amazing time we had in New Zealand! It was truly the best trip we have ever taken as a family (2 parents, 2 boys ages 18 and 22). We started with a simple email to Ahipara outlining our interests of high adventure with a lot of exposure to the local people and culture. We wanted local lodges owned by proprietors and not big, typical chain hotels. We wanted hikes, helicopters, extreme adventures and memorable experiences. We wanted a bespoke trip that nobody had replicated previously. Marina and Ahipara delivered in EVERY respect! We were not disappointed by a single lodge, activity or encounter on our 10 day trip; on the contrary we are hard pressed to see how it could have been any better. Furthermore, we made in-country adjustments due to weather that required moving things around (including lodging) and Marina was always readily available and super accommodating. That truly helped us make the most of the trip vs. having some disappointments along the way.

All-in-all I highly recommend Ahipara for your trip to New Zealand, and if you are wavering on whether to visit New Zealand, DON'T! It is one of the most amazing places you could ever visit.
