Backpacking in New Zealand is epic. It’s a top place to go either on a round the world gap year or a standalone destination in its own right.
Gap year travellers often treat New Zealand like a giant theme-park, hopping from place to place and cramming in as many adventure activities as possible in a short space of time. If you want to bungee jump, climb, kayak, raft, skydive or zorb, then New Zealand has it all.
New Zealand is famous for its natural beauty: snowcapped glaciers and jagged mountains; crystal clear lakes feeding into raging rivers; bright beaches and warm seas. Throw in a bubbling-pot of volcanic activity and you get some of the most magnificent scenery in the world. Lord of the Rings was filmed here for a reason!
What are you waiting for? Get the adrenaline pumping and make it happen...
