Welcome to our office and homes!! The Adventure Consultants head office is located in the alpine resort town of Wanaka in the South Island of New Zealand. It's known as New Zealand's premier non-commercial resort for skiing, snowboarding, heli-skiing, mountain biking, rock climbing, hiking, fishing, kite surfing, swimming, water skiing, wake boarding, sailing, paragliding, coffee, wine & cuisine or just relaxing on the beach or exploring Mt Aspiring National Park.
The photos from this page will take you on a tour, from our office and into our lives. All the AC staff are into the outdoors and we play as hard as we work. It's a fantastic spot and we'd love to welcome you to it someday...
Here is a picture of Lake Hawea, Lake Wanaka (behind) and Mt Aspiring. We are situated in what is known as the Southern Lakes Region of Otago.
We moved into our new premises in January 2013. We are walking distance to the shores of Lake Wanaka and now have amazing views of the surrounding mountains that we love to play in. The new building is a nicely renovated house with space for groups to get ready, a classroom, a dedicated kitchen and an area for packing expedition gear for freighting to the far corners of the earth. We've also expanded our lobby with added retail space. There are ten work stations in the office with a nice outdoor deck and shade cloth for the Friday afternoon g and t's!
Company owner, Guy Cotter gets out of the office whenever he can, here hiking above Lake Hawea.
Suze Kelly, our Business Manager, likes to get out often on her mountain bike.
Rock climbing in Wanaka - Guy put up many of the first sport climbing routes around Wanaka.
The mountain biking around Otago is outstanding - here high above Lake Wanaka.
The lakes warm up during summer months (December to March) and swimming in the cool clear fresh water is amazing.
So is the tubing (being dragged behind a boat on a rubber tube!)...
... and water skiing.
And yes, we have lots of sheep.
When the weather cools down in April/May we turn our sights to the local bouldering.
The trees lose their leaves just before the snow falls on the ski resorts above town.
And once the snow comes there might be a 'Gone Skiing' sign on the door for the opening day powder session at Treble Cone.
Here we are during a staff ski day at Coronet Peak
Even when the powder dries up the skiing is still great high above the lake.
Or we head to the high hills for some serious turns.
Come and visit sometime soon.
