We are an outdoor adventure guiding company, based out of Taupo and Ruapehu located in the centre of the North Island.
We specialise in trekking, hiking and canoeing adventures throughout the Whanganui and Tongariro National Parks, including New Zealand’s best day one-day walk, The Tongariro Alpine Crossing and the famous Whanganui River 1 or 3 day Canoe tour . We operate all year, summer and winter and whether you’re a novice or keen adventurer we have a tour to suit.
Professionally we have had 21 years of experience and personally far more with qualified instructors. Adrift is qualified and is registered with NZ Worksafe DoC Qualmak and has yearly 3rd party external safety audits. Our guides will ensure your safety whilst explaining the geography, history, culture and flora and fauna of the Tongariro and Whanganui National Parks, and New Zealand.
We guide every day with wind, rain, snow and even brilliant sunshine. All tours depart from the Adrift Tongariro base, 53 Carroll St, National Park Village. Our base – on the border of both National Parks, has its own shop café bathrooms and retail.
