Eco Tours in New Zealand

We provide eco tours to most parts of New Zealand depending on your interests and what you would like to see and experience. We have complimentary pickup from Auckland airport and then you are on your trail of discovery. On our tours you will get up close and personal with local wildlife, see the conservation work being carried out at many of our nature centres dotted around the country and observe creatures that can be found nowhere else in the world. You can plant a tree and do your bit towards establishing an ecosystem that existed in New Zealand before human settlement.

Starr Tours provides  real experience eco tours that you will remember for a lifetime.

You can have the real kiwi experience and learn about the settlers and what they went through to carve out a foothold in the rugged and wild country. See some of the early settlements, walk through forests with trees thousands of years in the making, the great Kauri timbers of Northland, or marvel at the alpine flora and fauna in the Southern Alps while embrassing the breathtaking views of the Southern Lakes.

The hot and steamy thermal environment of active hot pools and geysers around Rotorua contrast the gentle farmland, native bush and the grandeur of the mighty Southern Alps region.

You can help protect and enhance the natural environment through learning about the impact settlers have had onNew Zealand. Wander through some of the original settlements and see man's impact on the land.
