Its been an amazing two weeks for the father and son team from California. After leaving behind the stresses of a hectic work load they ventured into the wilderness of New Zealand chasing adventure and a few trout for good measure. We introduced them to our way of life and our way of having fun with people who are passionate about New Zealand. They witnessed first hand our wile brown trout and powerful rainbows, they learnt a lot about what it takes to catch these amazing trout in these pristine wilderness rivers. They witnessed mind blowing landscapes from above and were treated to wild food feasts in some of most remote areas.

Wild red deer don't often visit you on the river in the middle of the day so this was a real treat for the guys

What I found great about this week was the true appreciation from Greg and Ken towards our way of life and the environment in which we live. Seeing the enjoyment and laughter from this father and son team was inspiring in many ways. And to see their enjoyment being inspired from the experiences we gave them here in New Zealand assured us that The New Zealand Adventure Company was doing it right.

This is is what it’s about. Taking time out from our busy lives and reconnecting with the things that truly matter in life.

Thanks for a great week Greg and Ken. Both Pete the pilot and Crazy Pete along with myself look forward to you return to New Zealand for more unique life experiences.

Cheers,

Jake and Pete
