Every woman deserves to spend time on her life’s journey in the company of other women, sharing new experiences, meeting interesting and inspiring people, being in nature, laughing over shared meals together, feeling safe and well cared for, relaxing and taking time to reflect on her own life.
Our ‘HER Journey’ women-only trips do just that. HER Journey trips are designed by women, for women, and connect you with inspiring locals who we know and love throughout Aotearoa.
Short & Perfect
NEW for 2021! We have created these special 4 experiences for all adventurous Kiwi women to come and discover the magic of our own backyard…we’d love to show you around your own Aotearoa!
We believe travel can be transformative with the right ingredients: exploration, excitement, intrigue, awe, stories, shared connections with both nature and local people, and time for contemplation and reflection. Our Immersive Journeys are designed to include these elements for truly memorable travel.
How Our Trips Differ from Others
Designed by women for women
You share these carefully crafted journeys and bespoke experiences with other women. Sit back and relax while we take care of everything
We connect you with wonderful locals
We’ve spent years developing relationships and partnering with amazing locals who offer unique and exceptional experiences. You’ll spend time with these caring locals and see the world through their eyes. Our locals are what make our trips so meaningful.
We keep our trips small
Our maximum numbers range from 10 to 14 people. You benefit from highly personalised service. You gain access to experiences, places, or lodging that are not an option for bigger groups. You develop lifelong connections with your travel buddies
Best vacation ever! Debbie did a fabulous job of showing us the beauty of New Zealand. She insured that we all were comfortable, having fun, and making sure that we all had what we needed. We made lots of new friends and I hope sometime to go again with Debbie and see more of the country!

I would highly recommend New Zealand Awaits holidays. Debbie is an outstanding organiser and leader.
Her attention to detail, care, support, kindness and thoughtfulness created a wonderful group atmosphere and superb holiday. I would highly recommend her fantastic trip.....tours, accommodation, food are of an exceptional standard.....treat yourself,
Thanks you deserve it....if not now, when?

We were impressed with how much fore-thought (and continued thought) went into this trip. The amount of concern for the well-being of every person on the tour was exceptional. The quality of the accommodations and meals was top notch and the varied experiences on both islands were exciting and wonderful. The small companies you worked with made each adventure fantastic. New Zealand is as beautiful as everyone says it is and this definitely was a trip of a life-time!
