About: The outdoors have been a massive part of my life for many years now. With a background in multisport and adventure racing, I have spent a lot of time exploring the incredible terrain we have in our backyard. I have fallen in love with the terrain and scenery, and I look forward to sharing this with you.

While I'm not out on adventures, I work as an auditor for Moore Stephens Markhams, and volunteer in an urban search and rescue team. I also worked as a kayak instructor/guide for 5 years training people for the Coast to Coast. Over the years I have picked up a wide range of experiences and skills that you wouldn't expect the accountant to have!

What to wear

Hikes // You must ensure you are well prepared for any hike in New Zealand as weather can be a serious threat to those outside. Your Bushman will check your gear and decide on whether you have met the minimum requirements before heading out. For more on this,visit our FAQ here. You will be emailed a full itinerary upon the completion of your booking. 

Food to bring

Day Hikes // We recommend light snacks and energy food while out walking and full, protein heavy meals for your lunches and bigger breaks. For example, energy or protein/breakfast bars, "scroggin" or a bag of mixed nuts, wraps with perhaps white meats, heavy salads and sauce, or opt for just about any meal from Back Country Cuisine.

Multiday Day // Expanding on from above, we recommend something to chew away at while out. A good energy boost on hikes with hills could be Pascal's Jet Lollies - which are high in energy and quite light. For breakfast, try the small porridge satchels and coffee/tea sachets. Again, dinners can be covered in one swoop with the Back Country's selection. For more, visit our FAQ below.




“As a traveller on her own, it’s hard to find something that you can enjoy on your own too, without huge crowds. I found Bushman Tours and noticed you could essentially book one guide. Jordan was my choice as we have similar interests and was really welcoming. He’s got great knowledge on the natural world and was really chatty.”



“We booked an overnight trip with Jordan months in advance and had good communications leading up to going out. I really enjoyed his knowledge and that it felt less “touristy” and as if he had a job to do. It was so relaxed and fun.
