PETE SIMPSON 

Facilitator / Guide

Pete is a Scotsman who's lived in Wanaka for 16 years. He first came to New Zealand in 1994 to kayak and enjoy New Zealand wilderness. After 10 years of working internationally as a professional kayaker, paddling remote and often unchartered class 5 white water, he chose to return to New Zealand and raise a family. 

 

"New Zealand has the perfect environment to blend together any adventure. I think it’s pretty dam neat and I enjoy sharing this experience with others".

 

Pete has a degree in outdoor and community education which given him the opportunity to work worldwide and subside his kayaking habit. Pete is advance first aid trained and a tracking team leader for wanaka search and rescue.
