South Pacific Solo Backpacking Trip 2014 This trip will be one of only many backpacking trips I plan going on in the future. 2 months traveling the pristine islands of Fiji, the North/South islands of New Zealand 'the adventure capital of the world' and the east coast of Australia

South Pacific Ideal Itinerary: Part 2 (NEW ZEALAND NORTH & SOUTH ISLAND)

New Zealand | Wednesday, 27 November 2013 | 15 photos

First 28 days will be spent with a small group (10 people) in their 20's and 30's on an all encompassed tour of both the north and south island (see tour route map below). Some highlights of the tour include learn about the Maori culture, explore the Bay of Islands, surf raglan, conquer New Zealand's top-rated 1-day trek—the Tongariro Alpine Crossing (Hiking on an active Volcano), experience the stunning and unique glow worm caves, get an adrenaline rush in Queenstown with New Zealand's highest bungee, weave through the remote fiords of the Doubtful Sound by sea kayak, Heli Hike in helicopter and explore on foot the Franz Josef Glacier and discover Abel Tasman National Park by foot. After the tour I will spend an additional 9 days further exploring the north island to see Cathedral cove marine reserve and hot water beach at the Coromandrel, Hobbiton where Peter Jackson's Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit movies were shot and finally Lake Taupo where world class Sky diving is done. Bulk of my time on this trip will be spent in New Zealand as this country has it all and is where I had the inspiration to travel the south pacific.
