Home to three national parks, lakes, rivers, caves and canyons, Te Tauihu (Top of the South) is one of the best places to study Adventure Tourism and Guiding.
Let the diverse landscape of Te Tauihu become your beautiful outdoor classroom. We teach about 80% of our programme outdoors, so that you can experience real-life situations and grow your confidence as a guide. The multi-day expeditions and teaching trips are key components of the learning programme.
Our Nelson campus is located just a short distance from three national parks, and from rivers, ski fields and caves that are renowned throughout the world by adventurers.
