Alpine Adventures offers “exceptional” incentive group trip

Alpine Adventures offers “exceptional” incentive group trip for Mazda New Zealand


Queenstown luxury private guiding company Alpine Adventures is taking the groups and incentive market by storm with its unique and unforgettable back-country experiences receiving rave reviews.

Officially launched last year, the company offers luxurious and private back-country hiking and heli-trips in the summer and private heli-ski and board tours in winter.

Owner Mark Dewsbery was asked to create the “ultimate incentive trip” for the executive team at Mazda New Zealand.

The exceptional experience included a stay at the award-winning Blanket Bay Lodge and so Mark arranged a once-in-a-lifetime trip to Milford Sound the group would never forget.

“Mazda wanted to treat its Auckland-based team to an unforgettable day in Queenstown. We knew we could deliver something extra special and so we arranged for helicopters to pick them up at Blanket Bay, where they were staying, and take them for a jaw-dropping scenic flight to Milford Sound followed by a picnic lunch at Earnslaw Burn.”

“They were blown away. They loved the luxury of being picked up from their accommodation and whisked away for the morning. They were in awe of the scenery and could not believe their eyes”, he said.

Swee McGowan from Mazda NZ Group in Auckland said the trip was “brilliant”.

“I would highly recommend Alpine Adventures to everyone I know. Mark was easy to communicate with and responds to emails promptly and answered all my questions. I hope we will have another opportunity to engage Mark’s service again soon”, she said.

The Earnslaw Burn area is best known as one of the most dramatic locations featured in the blockbuster movie, ‘The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey’ and offers unrivalled scenery such as waterfalls and glaciers.

“We were able to show these guys a slice of Middle Earth, offering a unique experience no-one else can. They’ll remember it forever, I guarantee that”, said Mr Dewsbery.

Mark Dewsbery has cultivated an encyclopaedic knowledge of New Zealand’s native flora and fauna during 26 years of high-country farming and exploring the backcountry on foot and skis.

He can tailor group and incentive trips – from half day to 12 days – to suit individual requirements on request.
