BACKPACKING

backpacking-main-0187eurs2016
Hiking boots laced up, passport in hand and backpack full of all the wanderlusting essentials, including a black notebook for collecting recipes and a disposable camera. You’re ready to see the world, backpacker; and we’re ready to show it to you. Featuring experiences cherry-picked for their ability to get you living a slice of any new culture, and following itineraries that delve deep into the destination and all it has to offer, we’ve all but nailed the travel style for those who prefer to roam. Set down that two-wheeled suitcase, and don your favourite backpack: this is travel for the culturally curious. Be it traversing the mountains of Latin America, or 
navigating the diverse landscape of New Zealand. No matter where you are, we’ve got the trips to make your backpacking experience one that you’ll never want to forget. Whether you’re pining for less coach time, longer stays in each destination and days that put free time adventuring centre stage, or you’re tight on time or want to go home feeling like you’ve truly conquered a continent. We’ll keep your trails local, authentic and ensure you not just skimming the surface of a new destination. Backpacking has never looked so good…
