Meet the local legend Johnny

On the rugged West Coast of the South Island lives a local legend. In the depths of Awakari Valley, you will spend an adventurous day with Johnny. Full of character, he brings his stories of living off the land to life. We believe having personal encounters with real Kiwis is an essential part of your trip to New Zealand.

With his bushy grey beard, muddy gumboots and jeans, Johnny is renowned for living off the grid and preserving his much loved Awakari Valley. Take a journey into the rainforest on a purpose-built 4WD, spot red deer and visit an ancient Maori cave and the fascinating Pancake Rocks.

Pancake Rocks were formed over 30 million years ago, made up of pure limestone. Learn about the unique flora and fauna, rich history of the region and experience life in the bush. An experience that introduces you to the history and wilderness of New Zealand.
