Join Whenua Iti Outdoors to complete part of your Adventurous Journey Award component on an unforgettable adventure.
Venture into one of our stunning local national parks or surrounds, such as the Kahurangi, Nelson Lakes or Abel Tasman on a journey that you help plan! This journey will enable you to complete a Silver Practice or Qualifier, or for those enrolled in the Bronze Award, you will be able to complete both your Practice AND your Qualifier. This is true for the Kākāriki Journey as well.
Plan your Journey
You get to be involved in planning your journey with us and plan your trip while supported by our qualified and experienced instructors. If you are a small group* (less than 6), you will need to enrol individually and let us know the members of your group to assist in planning. We will develop a journey together to meet the needs of all the participants – that’s half the fun! Your journey will include cooking in the outdoors, bush survival, bush skills and navigation, with a plan for different options to suit the season and weather for your journey. We provide all transport, activities, outdoor gear and qualified instructors.
If you are a group of 6 or more we recommend you contact us for a tailored programme. You will then be able to design a journey with your instructors that could include other activities such as mountain biking, sea kayaking, rock climbing and caving for any level of your Award. Check out our Outcomes & Activities page to get an idea of the possibilities.
