What makes Pure Exploration different?
Real travel isn’t just about box-ticking guidebook recommendations or Instagram shots, it’s about authentic experiences spent with new friends who inspire you to think about the world and yourself in new ways. We also know that finding a job when you are travelling overseas is tough. It’s competitive and often skill specific. We’ve worked closely with adventure tourism operators in New Zealand to develop a range of programs that not only help people get a foot in the door to a great adventure tourism jobs in Queenstown, but also provide knowledgeable and competent employees to local companies. We are everyday Kiwis, helping you have extraordinary experiences.

June – August is New Zealand’s winter. We have chosen to run our NZ programs in the stunning Nelson region over this time, as it is less affected by snow and freezing temperatures Queenstown receives at that time. Nelson is a stunning region with beautiful native bush, high mountains and golden sand beaches. We offer sea kayaking as an activity and qualification to those on this awesome intake.
