Know Before You Go

Be AdventureSmart

Even a brief excursion into our beautiful but sometimes-unpredictable kiwi landscape can turn into an 'unexpected adventure' if the weather changes, if someone gets hurt, if the trail, coastline, river or ocean is rougher than expected, or if you don’t have the right gear, clothing or footwear. AdventureSmart is your portal to making sure you can find what you need to know, before you go.
