By the time you finish one of our New Zealand backpacking trips, this land of the long white cloud will feel like home. Contiki know that a backpacker’s world travel list isn’t complete until they’ve ticked off as many countries as possible. But we’re going to let you in on a little secret: backpacking New Zealand may throw a spanner in the works. Once you go the first time, you’ll want to keep coming back again and again!
For such a small country there is an endless amount of things to see and do while backpacking around New Zealand. You can get your thrills on adventure-packed experiences like bungee jumping, glacier hiking and jet boating. Or you can ski and snowboard your way to glory at some of the best powdery mountains in the world (Queenstown is a must!).
Perhaps you want to up your Instagram feed with all the natural beauty spots like Milford Sound and the Bay of Islands has to offer?
