This program - a more condensed version of our Summer Explorer - is the ultimate program for gap year students and young travellers looking for an intro to NZ. We will welcome you with open arms and show you the best this country has to offer you! We'll show you round the mean streets of Queenstown, the tops of mountains and the depths of deep oceans (from the safety of a kayak of course!). You'll spend time exploring and learning about NZ and gaining some travelling confidence yourself. We organise all the details so you can focus on having fun and growing from your kiwi adventure!
