Take the opportunity to connect with diverse kiwi cultures on the ultimate Outward Bound experience with a twist!

Get involved in all the outdoors has to offer, sailing, kayaking, rock climbing & tramping.

This is your opportunity to discover what is important to you and explore cultural identity and diversity.  You'll find yourself as an individual as well as finding your place in a team.

Push your boundaries, make new mates and unlock the potential you've always had in you.

I walked away from Outward Bound with inner and outer strength. I felt like I could take on the world and nothing could stop me.

- Sammy Jane Garret, Hillary 559
