Real Journeys

Sharing our backyard with guests since 1954.

Love every moment

The Real Journeys story began in 1954 when Les and Olive, Lady Hutchins started taking visitors into unexplored Doubtful Sound. Over 65 years on, we continue their dream of sharing the spectacular wilderness with visitors. We understand what a privilege it is to operate in this special part of New Zealand and we take our responsibility to protect and preserve these special places seriously.
