Explore Fiordland's wilderness on a Bushbash off-track guided adventure

Bushbashing means stepping off the tourist trail and into wilderness with experienced bush guides. In small groups of no more than six, we lead you off track through Fiordland forest to secret waterfalls, rivers and hill tops with forever views, well away from other walkers. Whether you book a day trip, or a multi-day camping trip, you'll leave with a unique insight into this world heritage recognised national park.
