Our proactive role in responsible tourism

Over the years we have always taken a balanced approach to our economic, social and environmental responsibilities to ensure we have a positive effect on New Zealand and do what we can to improve our environment.

We are very proud of what we have created and continue to improve. This has been supported over the years by winning multiple Tourism Awards, being Qualmark endorsed and winning the Best Car/Campervan operator for the 2014 Adventure Travel Awards and the Golden Backpacks Award in 2017 – as voted by customers.

Over the years we have supported numerous charities, schools, bands, global travellers, magazines, and various other alternative travellers. Below are some of the key initiatives we have played a significant role in.

Reducing the impact on the environment

We are always evolving the way we operate to help reduce our impact on the environment. As our global operations were born here in New Zealand we felt it appropriate to work together as a group on a special project here in New Zealand called Children’s Bay Park.

Children’s Bay Park is a 200 Hectare peninsula of land located in Akaroa Harbour just 80 minutes from Christchurch. It is a beautiful piece of land surrounded by two harbours.

Spaceships has been involved for many years now helping to replant areas of the property, re-fence the gullies so the native plants can grow, create wetlands to help filter any stock runoff and provide habitat for local birdlife, pest trapping and more recently public walking tracks.
