What People Say About Us

The Simply Wild Journeys Story

Simply Wild Journeys specialises in private bespoke luxury travel and adventure experiences in Nelson and Marlborough, New Zealand for couples, small family, friends  and corporate   groups.

Simply Wild is locally Nelson owned and operated and was formed in 2004. The five owners have a wide background in business, travel, tourism, finance, management, property and even veterinary science. The idea for Simply Wild came from Managing Director Rob’s experience as an original competitor in New Zealand’s famous Coast to Coast endurance race. That experience of travelling through a stunning wilderness landscape participating in different disciplines, (cycling, mountain running and down river kayaking) provided the inspiration to create Simply Wild’s “Journey at the Edge” multisport, multi adventure Journey.

With it’s wide variety of landscape, from the golden sand beaches of Abel Tasman National Park to the remote mountain grandeur of Kahurangi National park, Nelson proved the ideal location for multi day adventure trips. Along the way Simply Wild became involved in providing luxury scenic trips in the region, and now provides a wide range of luxury and premium adventure trips.
