Ian Balme

Ian Balme

Founder, Forgotten World Adventures

It’s been nearly 8 years since Ian Balme recognised the gem that the Forgotten World Rail Line was. In fact, it is his love for the outdoors, the people of New Zealand and preservation of its history that fueled his inspiration to launch what is today known as Forgotten World Adventures. Being a farmer and dedicated entrepreneur, this former Waikato Regional Councilor saw the scenery before him and it was a raw and untouched beauty.
