Tailored Programmes – International

We can create a unique experiential learning programme for international groups that can be designed to meet your desired outcomes using a mix of cultural, environmental or outdoors-based activities.

At Whenua Iti we specialise in developing unique programmes for different groups and love working with people from different cultures to introduce them to the wonders of Te Tau Ihu. We have created orientation programmes for visiting international students, co-ordinated outdoors experiences for refugees, run gap-year programmes and provided training for overseas-based adventure guides.

If you are interested in creating a programme with us, start by sending us a Booking Enquiry, and we’ll go from there!
