“People do not decide to become extraordinary. They decide to accomplish extraordinary things.”

– Sir Edmund Hillary-

Outdoor adventures change us. They connect us with ourselves, other people and with the rest of nature in a unique way. They encourage us to support each-other and believe in ourselves. They inspire us to take action on the things we care about.

Outdoor adventure changed Edmund Hillary forever. It led him to a life of service, caring for other people and the environment.

Build on his epic legacy and join us on your own adventure of a lifetime.

Our Story

Our Story

Hillary Outdoors is a not-for-profit charitable trust. It was founded in 1972 by Sir Graeme Dingle with Sir Edmund Hillary as Patron. Our goal now is the same as then - to sow the seeds of change and growth in everyone we work with, through outdoor adventures. We want to be part of a vibrant and sustainable future for Aotearoa New Zealand. We invite you to join us on that adventure.
