Our Story

Established in 2013 by Hokitika locals Chris Steel and Birte Becker-Steel, Wilderness Trail Shuttle caters for the specific needs of those riding the Wilderness Trail. Our staff are locals and have strong roots to the local communities, providing the colour that makes your experience that lives on long after you return home.

We have many years of adventure tourism under our belt. Since 1992 we have been providing outstanding professional cycling experiences in both a fully guided and self guided structure. Over the years we have refined our knowledge and sharpened our logistics skills. As technology has evolved, we have used what works and what provides meaningful support to our processes.

Through hard won experience, we know how to handle things when that unplanned weather system moves in and disrupts travel plans. Handling the outcomes of injuries or damage to equipment well, can make all the difference to planned itineraries.

From operating fully guided trips around New Zealand and overseas, we have developed those skills on the Alps 2 Ocean Trail, and extending our cover to the West Coast Wilderness Trail has brought us in contact with some great new friends. Our services are built on developing great partnerships and we have enjoyed getting to meet other visionaries who provide trail  services to make your trip a delight.

Behind Wilderness Trail Shuttle, lies a wealth of experience and customer service that is hard to match. Our vehicle fleet has been developed to meet a range of needs and group sizes. In combination with our sister companies at Hokitika, Twizel and Greymouth, we can offer a full range of services. Our growth has come because we truly enjoy working with people and we are just great at doing this. Our customers keep on coming back – along with their friends, and we look forward to making your West Coast Wilderness Trail experience a great one.
