Gutsy Girls Adventure Film Tour New Zealand November


Dare2Sweat Events, the company behind the highly successful Whai Ora Spirited Women – All Women’s Adventure Race, is bringing an all-new experience to New Zealand: the Gutsy Girls Adventure Film Tour.

Following a highly successful, sell-out Australian tour, Dare2Sweat has licensed the tour for New Zealand audiences and will be taking it on the road in November 2017. The tour will touch down in 10 venues across the country from Auckland to Dunedin.



Gutsy Girls creator Jemima Robinson of Adventure Reels explains: “Our aim at the Gutsy Girls Adventure Film Tour is to connect like-minded women and build a community of supportive adventurous women. By showcasing and celebrating the female adventurous spirit we hope to make women in the outdoors more visible.”

In 2017 the Gutsy Girls Adventure Film Tour will screen the most inspirational, heart-warming and entertaining films celebrating women in adventure from independent film makers around the globe.

The Gutsy Girls Adventure Film Tour includes a unique selection of ten films of varying lengths and styles covering topics relevant to women in the outdoors, and showing women who aren’t afraid to get grubby in their pursuit of adventure.

“We are thrilled to be bringing the Gutsy Girls concept, and line-up of creative, inspiring films, to New Zealand audiences” says NZ Event Organiser Heather Logie. “Gutsy Girls is the perfect partner event for our premier event, the Whai Ora Spirited Women – All Women’s Adventure Race” says Logie. “We hope that it will raise the profile of women in adventure sports – both in front of, and behind the camera – and perhaps inspire more kiwi women to tackle an event like Spirited Women, and to start documenting and sharing adventures available right here in our home playground”.

Dare2Sweat Events Director Neil Gellatly wants to make it clear that men are welcome too. “Bring your daughters. What better way to show your support for their aspirations to be mountain climbers, free-skiers, Olympic kayakers and all-round adventure junkies” he says. He’ll be taking his along, and hopes to see lots of husbands, partners and Dads there too.

Tickets are available online at and cost $25.00 per person. Groups of ten or more receive a 10% discount when purchasing tickets in one transaction.
