EXPERTS IN NEW ZEALAND

We have been guiding hiking and cycling tours in our own backyard, the stunning Aotearoa / New Zealand, for over 25 years. We know all the tricks to make your trip the best one it can be.

FOOD DELICIOUS FOOD

Through years of adventuring in New Zealand, we have perfected the art of preparing delicious food no matter where we are. 

After a day's walk or cycling, nothing beats sitting around a table with delicious home-cooked food, sipping a glass of wine and having a good yarn.

Meal times reflect the social nature of Sidetracks Women tours, with everyone pitching in to help prepare what’s on the menu, and tidy up afterwards. 

SOLO ADVENTURES WITH A TEAM

Wanting to try out a guided hiking or cycling tour, but have no one to do it with? At Sidetracks Women we offer women only tours and support you with a ready-made, all-female group and an experienced female tour leader to help you make the most of your adventure. Multi-day guided hiking and cycling trips lead to new experiences in many ways, new adventures, new passions.

WHERE'S THE FINEPRINT...

Rest assured we don’t do fineprint, hidden costs or extra entry fees, tickets etc - no surprise expenses.  

All our guided tours include your accommodation, most of your meals, all the guiding and driving, all the activities outlined in the tour description, any necessary equipment, even your coffee, tea and biscuits while cycling or hiking, and a welcome drink on the first night.

COMFORT AND CHARM

Our accommodation is all about comfort and charm. It’s about amazing locations and breathtaking views of our beautiful New Zealand. It's about quirky details and unforgettable company. We prefer to stay in carefully chosen and comfortable places.
And don't worry about a heavy backpack on the adventure of a multi-day hike! You only need to carry a daypack.

WE CARE

about people, nature, the environment. You will find this at the core of everything we do.

  WHAT THEY'RE SAYING... 

Central Otago Gold Cycle Tour

Each day was a new experience of the ride, the beauty of the region and the camaraderie. Thank you for the best holiday I've had in years during a time when it was so desperately needed. I couldn't have asked for anything as perfect as this and it was exactly what I was hoping for when I made the reservation to participate.”
