“Broadening young minds through real life travel experiences”.

Their aim is to provide inspirational tours that motivate students in every aspect of learning by offering unique, engaging and practical experiences within New Zealand and across the globe.

Haka Educational Tours focuses solely on tours and camps for schools, universities groups and individual students. They run tailored, curriculum-aligned academic tours for students from all over the globe.

Initially, Haka Tours was approached by schools to create custom tours for student groups, but as demand grew, and they continued to receive outstanding feedback, they decided to really focus on the educational division and launch Haka Educational Tours.

Established in 2006, Haka Tours is the brainchild of Ryan Sanders – a keen and experienced Kiwi traveller who wished to escape his dull corporate life.  The company then expanded into accommodation with 5 upmarket backpacker lodges and two hotels across NZ.

Global Games &

Haka Educational tours

Over the last three years, Global Games have been working with Haka tourism, who have not only helped with moving our national and international teams to take part in the NZJRF, but have given us insight and knowledge into one of the most successful organisations in NZ.

If you are travelling between Islands or overseas, Haka tourism is now our preferred provider for travel to our events. Not only are they the best at what they do, but we are also supporting an NZ company who supports us.

After two successful years as the main travel provider for Global Games, from 2019 Haka Educational Tours have been signed as our exclusive travel partner for all our Global Games festivals.

Each tour package can be totally customised for your team – our team will work closely with you to understand your requirements.
