Tour Op Expands New Zealand Itineraries

Adventure travel specialist Intrepid Travel has recently expanded its tour options to include eight new New Zealand itineraries.

New New Zealand tours include five ranked as “Intrepid Basix,” aimed at backpackers looking for the congeniality of traveling in a group with a guide; while the others are all rated “Intrepid Comfort,” which the company calls “travel with a soft landing at night.”

The new Basix tours range in duration from 10 to 21 days, and show adventurers from around the world the highlights of the country with inclusions like an overnight cruise, guided hiking, and kayaking on the Milford Sound. Transportation is by private vehicle and group maximum is 15.

Aimed at boomer vacationers, the Comfort trips feature accommodation in three- or four-star hotels and lodges. The new itineraries range from eight to 17 days and are designed for travelers with an interest in the country’s culture, history and scenic national parks. Transportation is by comfortable “coaster” vehicles, with maximum 14 in each group.
