Catering to the different whims of all kinds of adventurers – active cyclists, laid back luxury-lovers, and easy going off-road drivers – these New Zealand vacations have one common aim: helping the free-spirited traveler get off the beaten path.

New Zealand is one of the most ruggedly beautiful and unique countries in the world, and yet more and more international travelers are getting stuck in the tour bus rut from Rotorua to Queenstown. Escape this fate and claim the Kiwi spirit of adventure for your own with off-road adventures from Fresh Tracks New Zealand.

New Zealand is such an incredible country with so much to offer, I can’t imagine anything worse than getting stuck on a bus in a tourist trap here,” says John Parker, CEO Fresh Tracks Travel. “Whether you want to take the wheel yourself, let a local take the lead, or stretch your legs with a biking tour, make a stay in New Zealand your own adventure with one of these vacations.”

With a self-drive vacation, travelers can truly set their own course. With the Backroads of New Zealand 4×4 Tour travelers can also rest assured that their course is the best option. Discover New Zealand outside the guidebook in this 8-day vacation, navigating the winding streets and country roads of New Zealand, visiting the big sights like Auckland, Rotorua, and Christchurch, but enjoying the time to sit back and savour the pastoral fields, impressive volcanoes, and sudden lakes and towns that freeway tour buses miss.

For more relaxed adventurers looking to combine off the beaten path sights with a little luxury, the 4×4 Private Guided Taste of New Zealand can’t be beat. This guided tour combines the sightseeing highlights – big and small – of the two islands with the expert knowledge of a private guide. Throughout this journey the expert guide will take care of all the little details, offer insight into the big sights, and get travelers off the beaten path while they sit back and enjoy the ride.

For travelers wanting a more intimate approach to unique New Zealand travel, cycling vacations are a great option. The Fresh Tracks Milford Wilderness Cycling Tourfeatures an exceptional mix of unique accommodation, a great cycling route, and some of the South Island’s best scenery.

Whatever your taste for adventure, these vacations are sure to get travelers off the beaten path when visiting New Zealand. Get off the bus and discover New Zealand with new packages from Fresh Tracks.
