Backpacking New Zealand

Backpacking New Zealand is made so easy thanks to a great bus service and easy hitch hikings opportunities.

If you have time, we strongly suggest exploring both the north and south island to get a real flavour of what this country has to offer. From world class hikes and adrenaline-fuelled sports, to stunning crystal waters and permaculture havens.

Long-term traveller? Head to Australia and Bali on your route home. Let these guides convince you it’s a good idea:
