Our guide quoted in today’s NYTimes Sunday Travel section

Today’s (Sunday’s) NYTimes has an article about thrill seeking in New Zealand. Our Wilderness Travel guide, Jon Imhoof, is quoted several times in the article, talking about why kiwis have done so well in the adventure travel business.

Jon grew up in Florida, majored in Anthropology at the U of Hawaii and has been in the guiding/travel business for over 25 years. He “invented” river surfing and founded a business called “Serious Fun” which he sold a few years ago. He now does trips for Wilderness Travel as well as heli-skiing and snow kiting adventures.
