Ngāi Tahu Tourism

Manaakitanga (hospitality) is one of the core values which drives Ngāi Tahu Tourism and its way of doing business. This value ensures the team are great hosts, always extending a warm welcome to visitors to Te Waipounamu and Aotearoa.

The environment is central to Ngāi Tahu culture and it has been a conscious decision to invest in tourism activities which reflect our intimate relationship with the unique New Zealand landscape.

Ngāi Tahu Tourism is the parent company for a selection of iconic tourism businesses specialising in the outdoors. These include Shotover Jet, Franz Josef Glacier Guides and the Hollyford Track, leading experiences that are well known overseas and a must-do for many visitors.

Ngāi Tahu Tourism is focused on the aspirations of Ngāi Tahu whānau, its role in the development of cultural tourism in Te Waipounamu and working with rūnanga to reflect Ngāi Tahu cultural interpretation within its brands. Building strong and enduring relationships between its businesses, the wider industry, government, rūnanga and other iwi is important for the company as it drives to be an investment partner of choice in the tourism sector.
