Ahikā is a Māori word that talks of the challenges of keeping the home fires burning, over generations.
Ahikā Journeys aims to meet those challenges through sustaining the health of the land by connecting land, life and local. For us it is about continuous care of the land, for this generation and the next; for the benefit of all.
New Zealand is a land renowned for its horticulture, agriculture, food production, vineyards and more – industries that support trade both domestically and abroad.
These industries, however, also support communities, and within these communities, down the long winding driveways, there are people with stories to be told and a love of the land that has to be shared.
We began Ahikā Journeys so discerning travellers, from around the globe, could connect with the custodians of this productive land. So they could immerse themselves in life on the land, meet the people and experience fine fare. This is where home fires burn and passions run deep.
We offer discerning travellers a unique opportunity to enter the life and home of some of New Zealand’s most exclusive working rural properties; many of which are opening their doors for the first time.
