Why Pure Journeys?
We’re so passionate about New Zealand. We love it. What's not to love!
We live and work surrounded by the breathtaking mountain and lake vistas of New Zealand. It reminds us every day of how lucky we are to sell holidays to people visiting our own country and why we believe New Zealand is the most beautiful place on earth. We’d like you to think that too, so our aim is to really get you immersed in what makes our little corner of the world so great.
We want you to immerse yourself in all New Zealand offers, explore its beauty in your time and at your pace and to see this wonderful land as it should be seen. We’re not in the business of selling 'packages' of hotels and city tours - we're in the business of selling dreams, of bucket list holidays and of once in a lifetime experiences. We're here to make your New Zealand holiday the absolute best it can be.
As you look through our site, you’ll notice a selection of suggested self drive holidays departing from some of New Zealand's main cities. These are there to inspire you but rest assured we have over 300 more for you to choose from if these don't tickle your fancy. Designing bespoke tailor made self drive holidays just for you and your companions is what we do best.
Our fantastic team travel extensively throughout New Zealand every year and have experienced all the destination has to offer first hand. We would love the opportunity to talk with you about your holiday and show you what we can do to make it that holiday of a lifetime.
Get in touch today, you wont be disappointed. You'll be inspired!
You're in safe hands.

I was brought up in Auckland but my Mum was originally from Japan and made sure I could speak both languages. Studied in New Plymouth before moving to Wanaka for the mountains and outdoor activities and I wasn’t disappointed! I’m a big foodie so if you want some advice on great spots to eat at around the country just give me a call. I would love to work with you in planning your dream holiday.

Originally from Scotland but spent a lot of years travelling through Australia and New Zealand. I fell in love with the diversity and activates that NZ has to offer so landed my feet here in Wanaka and have never looked back. Planning your trip around New Zealand is something that should be easy, satisfying and above all truly memorable. I would take great pleasure in helping you book a tour around Aotearoa the land of the long white cloud.

Originally from Australia but after visiting New Zealand I loved it so much that I settled here, still support my home country of Australia in every sport - makes for good rivalry with my friends! I am a keen snowboarder in the winter and love camping and hiking in the summer. I love getting out and exploring new things. I especially enjoyed my trip to Aoraki/Mt. Cook as well as taking a flight over Tongariro National Park both truly spectacular.

Originally from Vancouver, Canada but landed in New Zealand over ten years ago, now. I have travelled the country extensively and am fascinated how the landscape changes so drastically each time you turn a corner. In my spare time, I explore the countryside on horseback, taste our delicious food and wine and ski/snowboard in the winter. I would love to help you explore New Zealand and plan your trip of a lifetime.

Born and raised in Germany, the minute I stepped foot onto the shores of New Zealand I fell in love with the remoteness and diversity. In short, I love this place and everything I can enjoy in it. Whenever I’m not working you’ll find me out exploring the mountains and new camping spots. So, sharing and planning your holiday gives me great satisfaction, as I know the memories will be with you for many years.
