Why choose ExpedNZ?
For 30 years, our team has been developing adventurous and challenging programmes, each one with an individual focus based on the needs of the organisations and individuals we work with. Safety is of utmost importance and our Outdoors Mark Certification gives schools and other organisations confidence in our ability to work within Health and Safety guidelines. As safety guidelines become more complex, more and more schools and education providers are turning to ExpedNZ to deliver experiential education programmes.
