The Kiwi Experience Bus is one of the most popular ways to travel around New Zealand – the hop on, hop off format give the perfect balance of flexibility, comfort and cost.

The Kitchen Sink Pass – which begins in Auckland and finishes in Christchurch – covers all the highlights of both the North and South Island.

Explore the stunning beaches of the Bay of Islands, the geothermal hot spot of Rotorua and explore real middle earth at the Hobbiton set.

Kick back in the adrenaline capital of Queenstown, explore glaciers in Franz Joseph and enjoy the capital of Wellington – just some of the highlights you’ll cover on the Kiwi Experience.

The pass gives you the flexibility to simply complete your route in the min time of 25 days or if you have more time to spare you have up to a year to complete the pass – giving you loads of time to explore each stop off!

Along the way your awesome driver will let you know the amazing activities available at the next stop, give you some insider knowledge on your destinations and take you on some scenic hikes during your trip.

Explore New Zealand, meet heaps of fellow travellers and experience some amazing activities Kiwi Experience style!
