The Sunrise team have been helping visitors have great NZ experiences for over 20 years and we're just getting started!


Sunrise Holidays began in the 1990's, long before social media, when New Zealand was wearing stone-wash jeans and listening to grunge music. At that time Nathan Smith and his mates were running successful kayak hire businesses in the Coromandel and Abel Tasman. 5 years ago Nathan and his wife Cheiko bought Sunrise Holidays and have breathed new life into the business with their customer focus, attention to detail and extensive tourism knowledge.

My philosophy is simple, give people quality tools to have a great experiences, whether it’s in a kayak or a campervan, and the business will take care of itself...
