RatPack Intro:

Travelling New Zealand couldn’t be easier with the Kiwi Experience, these guys will take you around various routes of NZ, hitting up all the hotspots of the north and south islands. Choose a route best suited to you and your time frame and the kiwi ex crew will do the rest! They also guarantee you at least 1 hostel night at each location (which is awesome in busy periods).

Simply select a start date - we will then notify the Kiwi Ex crew of you arrival date and they will pre book each sector - you can then easily modify the sectors as you go.

Not sure when your travelling? No probs! You can book this experience open dated and then once you are ready to get booked in, drop us a message and we can sort it all out for you! Your pass will be valid for 12 months after purchase - so you’ll need to start travelling within that time, an awesome tip from us is that Kiwi have epic sales on throughout the year so we can hook you up!

{{ RPT recommends - put down the phone whilst your cruising about and chat to the legends around you, you never know what the next interesting convo will bring! }}

Destination Overview:

Unlike the TranzAlpine Dog Leg pass, the Kea heads up the coastline from Christchurch instead of cutting straight over to the West Coast. This way you get to see Nelson, the Abel Tasman National Park and its famous golden beaches. This New Zealand travel pass also gives you the chance to travel Christchurch to Kaikoura twice which is pretty lucky really because Kaikoura is one of our Driver Guides favourite spots and there’s plenty to do there. After catching a ferry or flight across the Cook Straight you’ll then get to take in North Islands best highlights before finishing in Auckland.

Itinerary:

**CHRISTCHURCH TO KAIKOURA**

Kaikoura is known as one of the best coastal wildlife regions in the world - whales, dolphins and seals!

**KAIKOURA TO KAITERITERI**
