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 Rangi Pass covers all the highlights of the North and South Island with a minimum travel time of 23 days.
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.
If you’re tight on time you can complete the trip in just 23 days, but for those who have more time to play with you have a whole year to make the journey – plenty of time to stop off and soak up more of the experiences each stop has to to offer.
Start anywhere and just finish where you started!
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.
