At Kaimanawa Alpine Adventures, our mission is to be one of the leading, sustainable and eco-friendly adventure tourism companies.

A strong connection to New Zealand’s heritage has shaped our beliefs around land use and our impact on the environment. We have spared no expense to ensure the adventures we offer are as sustainable and low impact as possible. 

Kaitiakitanga (guardianship) is at the centre of everything we do here at Kaimanawa Alpine Adventures. We are determined to protect our beautiful playground so it may be enjoyed by our tamariki and mokopuna (children and grandchildren) for years to come.
