AotearoA - New Zealand - awaits
FOR OUR CUSTOMERS -
We’re living in an age where people have more. More luxuries, more technology, more of everything than ever before — yet so many of us are left feeling unfulfilled and finding ourselves always short on time. We work like clockwork to keep our world ticking, rushing through our days rather than living in the present moment and feeling in tune with the world around us.
It's time to reconnect with our natural selves and the natural world. High up on a mountain surrounded by stillness or using its terrain to push yourself back down, or out in the ocean feeling its energy pass beneath you, it's Mother Nature reminding us what truly matters. In moments like these we appreciate our environment and we fill our lives with balance.
New Zealand's raw wilderness is something to be inspired by. Quiver-South aims to get you out there so you can experience it for yourselves.
FOR OUR ENVIRONMENT -
We aim to use Quiver-South to foster environmental awareness, fund environmental activism, and to organise and support conservation efforts in New Zealand as well as non-profit activists throughout the rest of the world.
10% of all bookings are reinvested back into our planet. We use 9% of sales from each booking to fund conservation projects, which you can stay updated on via our website or newsletter. Quiver-South is also a member of the Patagonia-founded 1% for the Planet and gives a further 1% of sales to support these causes.
At the same time, we will continue lowering our own footprint in our efforts to achieve this vision and are grateful for your help.
Your Journey Into Nature Should Protect It
We met as travelers — on a camping trip in New Zealand — in the beautiful Coromandel Peninsula. Drifting out to sea in a strong offshore wind while going around in circles during our very first stand-up paddle together, we got back to the beach and spoke about the idea of Quiver-South. Since then, we’ve dreamed of exploring together and inspiring others to see and feel the spirit of our home, Aotearoa.
The man who came up with Quiver-South is passionate about getting people outside to connect with nature. Into anything adventurous, he spent his childhood in the hills of Wales outside and covered in dirt. He went on to live and surf out of vans around Europe and to then travel to the other side of the globe. Now, you will most likely find him ranting about 'the powers that be' and dreaming up a life filled with homegrown vegetables and off-the-grid living. Sustainability for Quiver-South and everyone involved is something he constantly strives towards.
The brains behind the Quiver-South operation draws inspiration from the Aotearoa wild and wants to help others make the journey and experience its beauty for themselves. A Seattle native, she lived in Budapest and the Berkshires before traveling to this side of the world after adventure. When she isn't keeping Quiver-South's wheels well-oiled, you are likely to find her on the yoga mat (she's even certified to teach!), intentionally outside of her comfort zone, or calmly listening to Gareth’s rants as they scheme to inspire more consciousness and compassion in the world.
