Why Aotearoa New Zealand?

A small island nation located in the Pacific Ocean, New Zealand is famous for its breathtaking scenery, indigenous Māori culture and adrenaline-pumping adventure activities.

New Zealand is a country so diverse and so beautiful that there’s no wonder why it plants itself on the top of many travellers’ to-do lists. There’s a little something for everyone, from the great walks to the mountains, the hot springs to the hobbits and the beaches to the lakes.

If you’re considering Middle Earth (aka New Zealand) as your next study tour destination, it may be a long way from home, but there are few places in the world you can compare with what you will see here.

Totally authentic tours designed and hosted by born and bred Kiwis

“Jan and her team were amazing from start to finish. IGENZ created a rigorous and immersive program that allowed our group to compare the indigenous cultures from Canada and NZ and we found incredible similarities”.

Indigenous Studies, a story of empowerment

“IGENZ really gets it… they understand both education and travel. Jan and the team understood and supported our educational objectives from beginning to end. They also managed logistical details with such skill that the travel seemed effortless. IGENZ truly believes in students, and their enthusiasm shows.”
