Founded by Lesley Whyte multi-award winning photographer, adventurer and IAATO Antarctic Ambassador, Girls on the Road Again creates lasting memories for women (or as we call them “girls”) who are looking for adventure and have succumbed to the ‘travel bug’. Our tours are small group, well organised, lots of fun, exciting and memorable. We head to all parts of New Zealand, Australia and further afield and while we are girls travelling with girls, on some of our tours “your bloke is welcome” as we recognise some of the places we visit are also on your “blokes” bucket list.
While I lead all the tours and adventures, many are co-led by some amazing and inspirational women who bring dynamics to the tours, making your experience even more special! It is humbling to see how many join our tours more than once, we affectionality call these women our “repeat offenders.” You will also find me behind the wheel driving the coaches of our tours within New Zealand and Australia. Girls on the Road Again strives to provide a unique, small group experience to meet your needs. With a combination of the right amount of organised tours, activities and have recently launched our “intrepid” adventures where we head to remote places and locations. While our intrepid adventures won’t be luxury accommodation, you will be warm and safe; the activities will be off road, (sedate) jet boat trips and walking tracks unseen by many. You may be a seasoned traveller or travelling for the first time but either way we hope it will give you the travel bug and you become a “repeat offender.” Come on your own, bring your daughter, your Mum, a friend or lots of friends - book that trip that you have been waiting to do all your life. All tours are priced on a minimum of 10 travellers, fully escorted from the point of departure with three generous meals, accommodation, wines and cocktails, transport plus entry fees are all included, literally just pack your bag and bring your credit card for shopping. We welcome you if you are a solo traveller. Girls on the Road Again has partnered with The Private Travel Company to organise many of our adventures and tours outside of New Zealand. While we partner with fellow IAATO Antarctic Ambassador Darrel Day our Antarctic expeditions. Lesley Whyte Founder and Tour Lead Girls on the Road Again
