Our instructors are born adventurers. They live and breathe the outdoors. As well as being certified to lead groups in mountainous terrain they have teaching skills that are second to none. To be able to pass off such technical knowledge takes heaps of experience and all of our instructors are more than capable of it, they live for it! . . . . . . . #landscapephotography #x #naturelovers #beautifuldestinations #travelling #traveling #amazing #ig #beautiful #wildlife #hike #adventureseeker #adventureisoutthere #adventuretravel #exploretheworld #instagood #naturelover #exploring #getoutside #discover #outdoorlife #exploremore #offroad #adventurethatislife #adventurelife #bushcraft #summer #trekking #neverstopexploring #roadtrip

What is a true adventure? We have thought about it a lot in HQ and there isn't really an answer. It varies from person to person. It might be exploring a new city, pushing your limits physically or mentally or just finding a new walk in the area you live in. What we do on an Adventure Guide Program is explore unknown areas, learn new skills, push ourselves and embrace the outdoors. Our destinations are New Zealand, Nepal, Mexico, Slovenia and Italy, Patagonia and Iceland . . . . . . . . #landscapephotography #x #naturelovers #beautifuldestinations #travelling #traveling #amazing #ig #beautiful #wildlife #hike #adventureseeker #adventureisoutthere #adventuretravel #exploretheworld #instagood #naturelover #exploring #getoutside #discover #outdoorlife #exploremore #offroad #adventurethatislife #adventurelife #bushcraft #summer #trekking #neverstopexploring #roadtrip

As a true adventurer you should be skilled to deal with many situations. This includes injuries in hard to reach places. On this program we will ensure you come away knowing how to deal with any scenario that you might face. As well as either a Wilderness First Aid or Pre Emergency Hospital Care qualification we will also run through other scenarios you will face in the outdoors! . . . . . .

Not only do we explore on this 12-week Program, we also get involved with communities in the countries we travel too. This could be playing football with the local kids in Nepal, shopping at local markets in Mexico or carrying out some conservation work in New Zealand. . . . . . #pureexploration #adventuretravel #adventureguide #adventuretravel #gooutdoors #spendmoretimeoutdoors #agp #elp #expedition #globalexpedition #globaladventure #hiking #climbing #rockclimbing #nztravel #nzmustdo #patagonia #Nepal #peru #nz #personaldevelopment #hikingculture #earthoutdoors #liveforthestory #outside_project #wildernessculture #roamearth #mountainstories #travelstoke #liveyourbestlife

We are all exploration. Do you ever look out of the window when driving and wonder where a path leads to or see a peak that you wish you could climb. This is what we do on our Adventure Guide Programs. We aren't all about qualifications but more discovery and getting off the beaten track. . . . . . . #adventurer #adventure #travel #nature #wanderlust #explore #adventuretime #explorer #travelphotography #photography #hiking #travelgram #traveler #naturephotography #adventures #mountains #outdoors #camping #travelblogger #instatravel #wanderer #photooftheday #traveller #forest #outdoor #landscape #traveltheworld #hikingadventure

Becoming a whitewater rescue technician is no easy feat. Braving the waters in Nepal overlooked by our experienced instructors will take you from zero to hero when faced with any water crossings out in the field. Our Nepal Program in September still has a few spaces on it with the borders opening this month! We can't wait to have another cohort out there this year! . . . . . . #pureexploration #adventuretravel #adventureguide #adventuretravel #gooutdoors #spendmoretimeoutdoors #agp #elp #expedition #globalexpedition #globaladventure #hiking #climbing #rockclimbing #nztravel #nzmustdo #patagonia #Nepal #peru #nz #personaldevelopment #hikingculture #earthoutdoors #liveforthestory #outside_project #wildernessculture #roamearth #mountainstories #travelstoke #liveyourbestlife

We can guarantee your fingertips won't be in this bad shape after our Programs but we can guarantee you will come out qualified as a rock leader.

A great tip for hiking/an essential is to make sure you plan your route and download maps to your phone that can be viewed offline. In the office we love using Alltrails, topo maps and Garmin maps. These enable us to follow routes, plan routes and also get some great ideas for hikes in the local area. It is also great to know how far you are walking so you can estimate a time that you might finish. You never want to be caught out by getting lost or stuck in the dark without lights if the hike takes longer than you think! . . . . . . #newzealand #nz #travel #auckland #nature #photography #queenstown #nzmustdo #wanderlust #love #travelphotography #adventure #southisland #roadtrip #instagood #mountains #landscape #travelgram #photooftheday #beautiful #purenewzealand #instatravel #explore #wellington #beach #naturephotography #hiking #picoftheday #sunset #newzealandguide

While climbing and hiking are at the core of our programs there are always opportunities to explore and try new activities. Here is one of our students in New Zealand getting a bit of skiing in in between his climbing modules. Here at HQ in New Zealand the ski season has just started and we are all excited in the office! Our September Programs will just catch the end of the snow season this year! . . . . . . #newzealand #nz #travel #auckland #nature #photography #queenstown #nzmustdo #wanderlust #love #travelphotography #adventure #southisland #roadtrip #instagood #mountains #landscape #travelgram #photooftheday #beautiful #purenewzealand #instatravel #explore #wellington #beach #naturephotography #hiking #picoftheday #sunset #newzealandguide
