Itinerary

Kia ora! Touching down in Queenstown, We'll meet you at our centrally located hostel to settle in. This evening you'll meet up with the rest of your travel crew and get excited for all the adventures to come in Aotearoa!

Today we get oriented with beautiful Queenstown, the high-octane adventure capital of NZ (and dare we say, the world!), getting our first splash of adrenaline with a jet-boat ride. Feel the thrill as highly skilled driver keep things pumping with 360 degree spins and speeds in excess of 80km/h. Tonight it's time to see what this backpacker hub is all about after dark! Don't forget to listen out for the local Kiwi accent to see if it lives up to its title as the 'World's Sexiest.'

This morning we make tracks to New Zealand's most majestic attraction - Milford Sound. Jumping on a fjord cruise, we'll experience the spellbinding combination of towering peaks, forested cliffs, resident seals, and plummeting waterfalls up close and personal. Pick your jaw up off the floor, this is nature at her finest. Tonight we'll cosy up in Te Anau, a picturesque town in the heart of Fiordland.

Sojourning through Tolkien-esque landscapes, we'll explore some iconic Lord of the Rings filming locations nestled in New Zealand's striking mountain ranges. After soaking up Middle Earth's awe-inspiring vistas and filling our camera rolls we'll continue on to Wanaka, a quaint resort town on a lake dwarfed by snow-capped peaks.

Today we check out all Wanaka has to offer, including going kayaking on the beautiful Lake Wanaka and spending some time on Ruby Island. Just us, Mother N, and a whole lot of mountain goodness.

Saying goodbye to Wanaka, we'll enjoy a scenic drive through the southern alps towards Tekapo. Famed for its milky turquoise lake, Lake Tekapo is alpine in the purest sense - boasting sky scraping peaks, enormous glaciers and purple lupins - so have your camera at the ready! On the way we'll stretch our legs on the iconic Hooker Valley Hike, this track will wind us through the valley to give us awe-inspiring views of Aoraki/Mt Cook, aka the tallest mountain in New Zealand. Officially accredited as one of the world's best places for star-gazing, we'll get a close up look at the amazing night sky through a telescope.

Today we will hike up Mount John where we'll get 360-degree views of the Southern Alps. After the walk we'll soak our tired muscles in some hot pools, nourishing both body and soul! New Zealand truly is the gift that keeps on giving.

After travelling back to buzzing Queenstown, securing you a paid job in New Zealand is number one on the agenda for today. Our team will help make sure you've got everything sorted for living and working in NZ, and get you signed up to our NZ Jobs program. Tonight we'll get the gang together one last time, dressing sharp for our farewell dinner and final night out on the town! Sweet as, Bro.

This morning your Southern Kiwi adventure comes to an end. Prepped and ready for the next leg of your travels along with the new friends you've made, we'll be there for support every step of the way.
