Kiwi Experience

Kiwi Experience

Not everyone will head to New Zealand with a plan. You might have a rough idea of where you want to go and what you want to see, but let’s face it, no backpacker sticks to a set itinerary for their whole trip. But worry not; Kiwi Experience understands that travelling is about embracing change.

Who knows, you might fall in love with one place and decide to explore for longer than you planned, you might meet mates you can’t bare to leave or you might just decide to stop and get a job for a couple of months. No matter how your journey evolves, there will be a Kiwi Experience that is perfect for you.

All Kiwi Experience packages include:

  • Unlimited travel: repeat your trip as many times as you like within 12 months
  • Hop-on-hop-off bus network
  • Flexibility: stay for as long as you want at each stop, just jump back on the bus whenever you’re ready
  • Drivers will sort you out accommodation which you will pay for locally as you go
  • Ability to start anywhere along your route
