Take the road less traveled on one of our truly "wild walks". We guide only small groups (max 5) on our 1-8 day hiking adventures. From seriously tough treks to easy walks, we provide a true wilderness experience in the Mt Aspiring National Park.

Active Adventure

We run remote wilderness trips from 1 to 8 days long. We guide over Rabbit and Gillespie Pass, considered New Zealand's hardest trek, as well as Cascade Saddle, winter snow shoe treks and glacier trekking on New Zealand's spectacular glaciers We also offer equally stunning (and challenging) local day hikes for those short on time.

Our multi-day hikes go through remote locations, with no crowded huts and where we rarely see other parties. We stay at pre-stocked camp sites which means you only carry a light pack. All you need is appropriate clothing, a good pair of walking shoes or hiking boots and a spirit of adventure. You will welcome the comfort of our fantastic home away from home. Our astonishing food is only outdone by the mountain scenery.

What makes Wild Walks different? 1) Quality not quantity. All our trips are small groups of 5 clients max. 2) Professional mountain guides. We are not transport operators who take you on a whirlwind tour of the South Island. We provide discerning clients with an intimate wilderness experience. 3) We have the best guides. Our guides are paid well, are highly qualified, local, and have intimate knowledge of the area. They enjoy what they are doing and strive to share that passion with you. Most importantly, every one of them is a whole lot of fun to be in the hills with. 4) Our 20 years experience. This allows us to take you where others can't. There is no such thing as adventure without risk. Wild Walks are experts at managing that risk so you can enjoy this unique and challenging part of the world. 5) Whatever your needs are, we go the extra distance to make sure your trip with us is perfect. We run the best trekking trips we possibly can, every time.

    I like a bit of a challenge and like pushing myself just a little more than I am comfortable. This was definitely achieved especially with the river walks. We saw beautiful scenery, got some very good exercise and spent some quality time with friends both old and new.
    There was a variety of terrain, a beautiful day, a nice long walk and a great lunch spot!

    Loved it!!

    It was an exciting and truly wonderful introduction to NZ backcountry hiking. It definitely built up our confidence to explore further than the great walks and tackle river crossings and a bit of track finding but not in a crazy “put ourselves at risk” kind of way. Michael managed to instill in us his love of the more remote areas but also his respect for their inherent risks.
    The helicopter rides, the amazing location of the hut, finding our way on the trails (knowing that Michael was never far away to find us if we went wrong!), the food.
    This is a wonderful trip and one which is perfect for those like us who want to get out into the wilderness with safety and without heavy packs. Thank you for putting it together and having such great staff and guides to support the adventure.
