It is with great pleasure that we announce that we’ve now completed the application process for a guided walking concession with the Department of Conservation (D.O.C.). This process was implemented earlier this year, with you, our clients in mind. It was our desire to improve our photography tours by taking you to some places that you might otherwise have merely driven past, and to enable you to get a truly unique New Zealand outdoors experience in the process. All of the tracks selected by us are no more than three hours return, and many are shorter than that. We would like to take this opportunity to offer our thanks to those within the department that have made this possible, and also to Adventure Mark for their guidance and support in attaining an approved Safety Management System, as required under the D.O.C concession conditions. We at Koru Wilderness Images are very grateful for the help and support from both organisations, and look forward to working with them both in the future.
