Jamie Garrod

Jamie Garrod

Founder, guide and jack of all trades - Jamie  has over 25 years of experience riding bikes (starting at the age of 3) from freestyle BMX to epic backcountry adventures. Jamie’s entire working life has been dedicated to guiding and sharing adventure with people from all walks of life. There aren’t many places in the world he hasn’t explored on his bike, in a kayak or on foot. We just wish he’d shave off his dodgy mustache.


Sam Roil

Sam is about as local as you get in Rotorua. He knows the Rewoods Forest like the back of his hand and pretty much the rest of the North Island, having spent almost every minute of his spare time getting out into the backcountry. With a guiding history in various locations in the Central North Island, Sam is THE man to show you our wilderness areas.

Phil Boorman

From an early age, Phil decided to make it his mission to avoid getting a job, so he set to work as a guide and tour company founder. For the last 20 years, Phil has made it his mission to provide authentic kiwi adventures for people all around the world.
