At Ngāi Tahu Tourism, our purpose is to make the connection with our customers, through our people, to our place and to Ngāi Tahu.
We are owned by Ngāi Tahu, the biggest iwi by population in Te Waipounamu (the South Island). With over 80,000 registered tribal members we are one of the largest whānau-owned (family owned) businesses in Aotearoa.
Mō tātou, ā, mō kā uri, ā muri ake nei For us and our children after us.
One of the largest tourism operators in Aotearoa, New Zealand.
Every day, we thrill and delight customers across our iconic world class tourism businesses which showcase the very best of Aotearoa.
These businesses include Shotover Jet, All Blacks Experience, Hollyford Wilderness Experience, Guided Walks NZ, Dart River Adventures, Dark Sky Project, Franz Josef Glacier Guides, Hukafalls Jet, Agrodome, and National Kiwi Hatchery.
Manaakitanga (hospitality) is one of the core values that drives the way we do business. As hosts, we care for our customers and our team as our own whānau. We take great pride in warmly welcoming manuhiri (visitors) to our experiences.
Our tourism roots extend back to when our ancestors were the guides for many of the first European explorers. Tourism allows us to host manuhiri, reconnect with ngā awa (rivers), ngā maunga (mountains) and te moana (the sea), and provide lasting memories for our customers.
