Still in the height of the tourism season, the abrupt closure of our business when COVID-19 hit New Zealand in March 2020, had a major impact on the company's cash flow and staff morale. Our tours were closed down with several hundreds of our clients' adventures postponed. The Forgotten World’s 15-unit motel shut its doors and we were unable to host any sort of thank you event to recognise our staff for their hard work and loyalty during the season.
While COVID-19 has affected New Zealand and the tourism sector in particular, we are still feeling pretty upbeat and have since our reopening on 10 October 2020 seen an influx of domestic tourists visiting the area and exploring their own backyard.
Forgotten World Adventures is one of 100 companies who were awarded the use of a brand new Toyota Highlander for a year. We are also one of 12 who were selected to feature in Toyota New Zealand's Believe newsletter.
