About Us - Antipodes Travel

Our Story

Based in Dunedin (Aotearoa New Zealand), Antipodes Travel was founded in 2004 by Sandrine Dizerens and Yoann Feillet, two French speakers who have made New Zealand their home since 2002.  Sandrine and Yoann share extensive experience of tourism and a passion for the New Zealand outdoors and have grown their multicultural team.

Antipodes Travel specialises in tailor-made trips, self-guided tours and guided stays in Aotearoa New Zealand for individuals and small groups.

Originally formed to meet the growing demands of French-speaking people wishing to discover “the end of the world”, Antipodes Travel is now helping Kiwis rediscover their own backyard from a fresh perspective – and with a French twist!

From French cuisine in Akaroa, to bucket list personalised adventures, or hands-on wildlife photography workshops with Yoann, Antipodes Travel can help you discover a New Zealand you have never been to!

And wait, there is more… With our Senior Destination Manager based in Australia, Antipodes Travel also offers unique tours in Australia. Stay tuned for further updates!

And when the borders are open again, we will take you to the French islands of New Caledonia and French Polynesia. Soon…

In the meantime, you are welcome to join us on our new Online Experience on Airbnb, live from New Zealand, to see why we fall in love with this country! Gather friends, family or colleagues for an hour of great stories, fun facts, quizzes and unique videos. Book an hour tour with us, choose your time and day, and let’s meet!

This online experience is run in English but if you want to brush up your French, we also run it in this language.
