Introducing William Goudie

Hi, I'm Will Goudie, the owner/operator of Lanz End Tours Limited. I started this company in July 2005 after returning to New Zealand after several years working and traveling abroad. During my travels I've met many wonderful people who have shown me their home countries, it's time for me to do the same and show you mine.

A Lifetime of Adventure

My parents introduced me to the outdoors at a very early age and my family spent many summers camping and tramping (hiking) in the Urewera National Park in the Eastern Ranges of the North Island. This early introduction to New Zealand's wilderness sparked a thirst for adventure that I have never since been able to quench.

Throughout high school and university I spent my summers either working or playing in the forests around New Zealand. This led me to study Forestry Science at Canterbury University, in Christchurch, New Zealand. Here I gained a detailed knowledge of the unique and diverse environment New Zealand has to offer.

Not satisfied with the Adventures of home, I've gone on to explore parts of Australia, the USA, Canada, the UK, Ireland, Europe, and South Korea, specifically seeking adventure in the wilderness of different countries. As an experienced international traveler, I've learnt that the value of local knowledge is immeasurable and I know exactly what a traveler seeking adventure needs to make their experience that much easier. And you certainly don't need to be a mountaineer to get there.

Let me share my lifetimes experience of adventure to give you an experience of a lifetime.
