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.

And The Whole Kit And Caboodle Pass is the most inclusive option that Kiwi Experience have – taking in all the highlights that both the North Island and South Island have to offer.

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

Trek across sprawling mountain ranges on the Togaririo Crossing, hike glaciers in Franz Josef and enjoy heaps of fun at the adrenaline capital of Queenstown – and that’s just a few of our favourites that you’ll experience en route.

For those on a tight time frame you can simply kick back and enjoy the min trip time of 30 days, but if you have more time to play with your pass is valid for a full year – so you can always extend your stay in your favourite destinations!

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!

NO better way to see NZ! This is totally the best way to see a bit of the whole country and make sure you have it all done the easiest way. You can decide when to move on, but you know you won’t miss any of the best stops in the country! Love the flexibility but also love having someone (KIWI) around to take out a bit of planning stuff.

This was a pretty decent way to see the whole country! I took 5 weeks but maybe a bit more would be better. Also I’d take the chance to go in the summer if you can. Some of the South Island gets pretty cold!

Bought this pass on one of the sales and it was amazing value. Met loads of new friends and our guide was a total legend.
