Destination in Focus: New Zealand

New Zealand hiking opportunities on your Gap Year


Get more out of your gap year with a trip to a country that has it all, New Zealand. Never more than a couple of hours away from golden beaches, rolling green farmland and spectacular snow-covered mountains, it’s no surprise New Zealand is a popular destination for gap years and working holidays.

It’s breathtaking views and thrilling experiences are second to none! When school is out, travel the length of the country and experience the thrill of trekking through jungles, shredding down slopes, or bungee-jumping above breathtaking landscapes.

If you prefer to steer clear from adrenaline-fuelled activities, tour other worldly locations such as the famous Fox Glacier or the set of The Lord of the Rings, explore snow-capped peaks and fish-filled rivers, indulge in the renowned Marlborough wine region or relax on one of the country’s golden beaches.

Our New Zealand Gap Year program is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity and is inclusive of meals, accommodation, weekly allowance, visa assistance, a comprehensive in-country orientation and ongoing support from our committed team.

Whether you’re a thrill-seeker, sight-seer or something in between, New Zealand is the perfect place to make lifelong connections with people from around the globe coming together in a unique blend of cultures.
