Expedition Earth Explore New Zealand

First off, if you haven't heard of Expedition Earth, you need to check them out! 

Back in April 2018, Kiwis Bridget Thackwray and Topher Richwhite, the duo who are Expedition Earth, set off on the adventure of a life time, travelling the globe in their Jeep Wrangler Rubicon they nick-named Gunther.  As they travel the world, their journey aims to promote environmental issues as well as the teams and organizations that work to resolve them.

2020 was supposed to be the final leg of their three year expedition, finishing here in New Zealand in December. However due to Covid and the closure of borders around the world, the duo decided to pause their international travels and head home to New Zealand. Rest assured, the adventure hasn't stopped...

Introducing, Heaphy, the Jeep Wrangler Rubicon who has become their temporary local travel companion while Gunther rests in Moscow.  Heaphy is helping the couple explore New Zealand from the far north of 90 Mile Beach to stunning Queenstown. 

As they explore more of our beautiful country we will be sure to update you, and on our Facebook and Instagram channels for some incredible backyard locations that you can save for later.
