XperieNZ’s Slow Travel Experiences reset your expectations that vacations are more than the pace of travel, more than ticking the ‘been there, done that’ boxes, more than indulging in what you like, more than what you wish to afford…just simply more than anything and everything that current traveling is all about. Slow Travel is revolutionary, and we consciously embrace it, ensuring our journeys allow you to enjoy and recall every moment of your trip and not just fleeting recall a list of places, activities, and feelings.
We practice Slow Travel as an art where the journey itself becomes the destination. You will understand and experience New Zealand’s deep-rooted sustainable practices, minimal environmental impact, and the profound connection to the land, communities, and culture.
A Thoughtful Approach to Exploration
Slow Travel is about immersing yourself in the soul of New Zealand. Whether your journey spans five or twenty-five days, our commitment to this travel form remains unwavering. We encourage travelers to disconnect from the digital expressway and reconnect with the natural world, creating a sense of inner harmony and balance.

Carbon Footprint Consciousness
We understand that responsible travel is crucial in today’s world. Slow Travel with XperieNZ is a statement of our commitment to minimizing carbon footprints. From eco-friendly transportation choices to sustainable lodging options, every aspect of your journey is designed with the environment in mind.
Our dedication to Tiaki, the Maori concept of caring for people and place, is at the heart of Slow Travel. It is not just a promise to New Zealand; it is a self-made pact to leave a positive legacy for future generations. As you embark on this journey of mindfulness and conservation, you will also become a steward of the land, leaving behind a legacy of responsible travel.
