The beauty of Best Foot Forward NZ is that owner/operator Bob McLachlan can work with visitors to Wanaka to customise adventure experiences for small groups.

Bob can offer a personalised, guided experience for solo adventurers through to groups of up to six people.

His wealth of experience in the outdoors, relevant qualifications and his personable nature will ensure an enjoyable outing.

“My aim is to create a guided adventure that will leave a lasting impression. I want to take you somewhere that you can escape from your daily routine and the stress that can come with it and share with you a remote wilderness experience in my breathtakingly-beautiful back yard. Although the emphasis is on enjoyment, professionalism and safety are at the forefront of all my adventures.” 

Whether it is hiking, biking, lake, or river experiences – or any combination of these activities – that appeals to you, let Bob design your adventure with you.

One-day, over-night and multi-day options are available.

Prices will be determined by each individual adventure’s requirements.

Bob’s guide rate per day is $950, plus expenses (transport, gear hire, food etc).
