THE NEW ZEALAND ADVENTURE COMPANY

The New Zealand Adventure Company is locally owned and operated by South Islanders Peter Spencer-Bower and Jake Berry of Wanaka. Growing up in the South Island amongst outdoor enthusiasts meant both Pete and Jake naturally developed a strong passion for sharing their knowledge and wilderness experience with others.

Pete followed his fathers passion for aviation and learnt to fly helicopters as a young boy, later becoming the owner and chief pilot of Greenstone Helicopters. Whilst Jake followed his childhood passion for fly fishing and big game hunting, later establishing Southern Rivers Fly Fishing. Both are very experienced in their professional fields and incredibly passionate about the remote wilderness region of South Westland and the lower South Island. Combining their experience and understanding Pete and Jake now share their knowledge of New Zealand’s wilderness paradise and are now highly regarded New Zealand adventure consultants.
