Kōmaru is a unique outdoor adventure business. We encourage and help anyone, from any walk of life, to share our passion for the outdoors. We build knowledge, experience and self-confidence, help people to learn new skills, and have fun.
Kōmaru is a Maori expression meaning ‘strong wind in sails’. It represents the idea of people using positive energy and of moving forwards.
Our innovative social business is about equality and accessibility. We hate the idea that some people never get to enjoy the great outdoors because of barriers created by health, money, disadvantage or disability, so we want our activities open to as many individuals as possible. The profits from our family and teambuilding days help fund community activities. Our Basecamp is wheelchair accessible and we strive to help anyone meet the challenges that get in the way of them enjoying the outdoors.
We were delighted to win the Social Enterprise Network’s ‘Pay it Forward’ Award for creating a ripple of good deeds in the community and the Switch on to Business ‘Best New Business’ Award.
