 Why we did it, our philosophy behind OFG’s

First and foremost;
They’re all part of our core promise of being ‘the perfect base for your glacier region holiday’.

We realised that New Zealand has been big on promoting its scenery, but somewhat deficient on providing the real insights. So we invented OFGs to change that.

We listened to what our visitors have been asking for years. To help them truly ‘connect’ with all our special walks places, not just left to do it by themselves.It quickly became obvious to us that people wanted to ‘engage’ and get more out of the local walks. They also wanted this option to remain inexpensive, no bookings or paid guides required. And stay as spontaneous options so they could be pulled out to conveniently fill in a free morning, afternoon or evening. OFGs are a response to all that.



It’s a work in Progress

Coming up with our OFGs wasn’t an overnight process.
In fact they’ve been a real mission and steep learning curve for everyone involved.
And don’t expect us to stop here because we’re committed to continually improving and expanding them
