Brian F

Christchurch, New Zealand

Working in the outdoors and sharing our special places with visitors to New Zealand has been my passion for over thirty years.

In the early 1980s while working as a bridge construction engineer, I spent every spare minute planning and leading private hiking, skiing, kayaking and cycling trips for my kiwi friends, a great introduction to working as a tour guide in the outdoors of New Zealand .

Then in 1988 I began work as an independent guide for a number of New Zealand and US companies, guiding a wide range of tours, throughout NZ.

When not working you will find me out hiking, cycling or skiing with my son's, as they too grow up to enjoy life in the outdoors.
