We are an award winning, fully licenced tour guiding service based out of Rotorua. Our company has been operating now for over ten years and our local guides have many years of experience guiding international visitors around our unique environment. We will ensure a safe, comfortable and informative insight of New Zealand’s ecology and culture. Elite Adventures has acquired a Government standard of excellence (Qualmark accreditation) and we pride ourselves in customer satisfaction. To support the environment in which we operate we support several conservation efforts – Save the Kiwi fund and Mt Ngongotaha Bush Restoration Trust. We are also active members of the tourism sustainability group.

Elite Adventures’ local guides have indepth knowledge about the flora, fauna, geothermal and volcanic activity and also our Maori culture.
