5, 7 & 14 Day Surf Tours

This is by far the ultimate surfing adventure!

You simply will not find a better organised surf tour in New Zealand!  For 8 months every year since 2002 we have been running multi-day tours.

Established in 2001, we were known as New Zealand Surf ‘n’ Snow Tours for 13 years.  We have re-branded ourselves as Rapu which in Maori means ‘to seek’ and, we feel, captures the quest to find that perfect New Zealand adventure. During summer, we offer both day and multi-day Surf Tours. During winter, whether you are a skier, snowboarder or an outdoor adventurer we have snow tour options for you.
