Bigfoot Adventures offer a fun and interactive way of achieving the Adventurous Journey components, to Aotearoa New Zealand and International award participants. With their qualified and experienced outdoor instructors, you can go straight from the couch to the bush, sea-kayaking or mountain biking. Did you know that they are also the first and only adventurous journey provider currently in Aotearoa New Zealand to offer Mountain Biking as an option at Silver and Gold levels?
Take full advantage of their unique and exhilarating experiences to not only develop yourself, but also to meet new mates and develop valuable skills to tackle whatever life has to throw at you. Bigfoot Adventures can give you the practical know-how to get out and experience the stunning backdrop Aotearoa New Zealand has to offer.
