I feel invigorated and inspired!

I truly feel that this adventure delivered what it promised – a real challenge, a special time to reflect in beautiful surroundings, reconnect with family, and create new bonds. I feel invigorated and inspired! I cannot praise highly enough guides Helen and Jake for their care and encouragement.

Surpassed expectations thumbnail

Surpassed expectations

The Aoraki Mt Cook adventure surpassed my expectations. We had wonderful experienced guides. It tested my limits of endurance and pushed my comfort zone in rock climbing, walking on ice glaciers to exploring an ice cave. Great value for money spent and all transfers and food was included so no effort on my part to organise. Thank you

Amazing experience

Without shadow of doubt, this trip was incredible. It was physically achievable but incredibly challenging. It required intense mental concentration at times, yet in that, was profoundly relaxing. This is 5 days of extraordinary….a welcome change from the often ordinary of our everyday life. Primal Adventures….you delivered one hell of an amazing experience. I will be back for more….for sure!!

Adventure on a new level

Wow. What a real adventure that was! Surrounded by the gnarley sounds of cracking glacial ice, the gorgeous beauty of nature in its raw elementary form and calming beauty in every direction. The Mt Cook experience was better than any therapy session I’ve been exposed to. Adventure on a new level. Thanks to Primal Adventures for an unforgettable weekend on the high passes and mountains of NZ. 

More than I hoped for thumbnail

More than I hoped for

I feel blessed to have experienced this incredible trip with an amazing bunch of strong women. Primal Adventures brought together our group of 8.. on a trip that was life changing. Over the three days we learnt so much, about ourselves and about the mountains and about mountaineering. Each day was filled with wonder, breathtaking views, inspiration, great camaraderie and new challenges. I had two key objectives for signing up for this trip. Firstly wanting to challenge my fear of heights and secondly and more importantly to experience entry level mountaineering, hiking on a glacier, using crampons and an ice axe and hiking in a remote area I could not access on my own. I will be forever grateful to Primal Adventures for delivering on both. The Mount Cook trip was both everything I expected and more than I had hoped for at the same time.

Helen and Jake went above and beyond guiding and looking after us and everyone’s needs throughout the whole trip

Treat for the senses thumbnail

Treat for the senses

I thoroughly enjoyed this Primal Adventures Bay of Fires Leadership Retreat! It was packed with rich content and insightful activities, yet provided enough time and space to take in the exquisite surrounds – the wildlife and land/sea/sky scapes were such a treat for the senses – I am well-travelled and this is truly one of my favourite places on earth. The lodge was comfortable and beautifully set up for individual and small group activities. Highly recommended!

A journey and adventure like no other

A trek like this requires so much more than physical fitness. It’s a journey and adventure like no other; abundant highlights to cherish, hurdles to test and overcome, humanity to explore and absorb, and personal insights to develop and reflect on.
