New Zealand Backpackers Travel Guide

Welcome to our New Zealand Backpackers Travel Guide.

We have some great information for backpackers, backpackers hostels and backpackers tours in New Zealand.

From what to pack to what to see you’ll know you’re getting the best travel information even before you arrive in New Zealand.

New Zealand is one of the most beautiful countries backpackers or anyone else can visit, with volcanoes, glaciers, geothermal activity, luscious bush, awe-inspiring mountains, endless stretches of beaches, abundant wildlife and much, much more.

It’s renowned worldwide for having a relaxed, friendly, spacious and outdoor adventure lifestyle (think sport, walks, BBQs, and beaches).

When you combine this adventurous outlook with our stunning backdrop you start to see why travellers and backpackers rate New Zealand as the action/adventure/adrenalin capital of the world!

New Zealand’s people (known as “Kiwis”) are well known for their welcoming and accepting nature.

Our history is littered with examples of us leading the world on gender equality, environmental initiatives and peaceful resolutions.

Why Backpacks?

Backpacking is an inexpensive and adventurous way to travel independently for a long time.

It offers opportunities to meet new people while learning about other cultures.

It lends itself to the outdoors and outdoor activities. It provides a sense of freedom and independence that other forms of travel don’t offer.

It allows greater flexibility and choice in travel. Changing plans is as simple as putting on a pack and heading in another direction. There are no bookings to change, no places they need to be.

"When you backpack you are totally self reliant, can stay anywhere, in a hostel or camp ground, you can bush walk or take a bus when you feel like it, you’ve always got a tent for back-up."
