We know first hand that managing a whole team and supporters to tour across the country to these kinds of events is a massive job! Sorting everyone out for Saturday morning footy is hard enough.

The good news is we have partnered with Haka Educational Tours to provide transport, accommodation and meal packages taking all the stress out of the tour and leaving you to focus your attention to other matters like having fun. Even better, there is also funding available for a number of clubs on such trips and we can provide paperwork required.

They can personalise each package whatever your teams budgets and needs are!

We're a proudly Āotearoa New Zealand owned tour company specialising in global group travel for schools, universities and sports teams from around the world.

We're part of the award winning Haka Tourism Group, which comprises of seven companies covering tours, hotels, lodges and more.

Each of our tours is bespoke; designed by our expert educational or sport tour managers to achieve your desired outcomes. Wherever you're from and wherever you're headed, we look forward to working with you.


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.

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.


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.


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.


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.
