With bustling cities, stunning scenery and endless adventures, it’s no surprise New Zealand is a popular gap year destination. Filled with mountains, lakes and glaciers, New Zealand has everything to offer. Whether you want to spend your time bungy jumping over the Waikato River, exploring the Māori culture with a trip up Mount Hikurangi or relaxing on the 15,000 kilometres of coastline, New Zealand has it all.

When you’re considering your post-school options, there’s lots to think about. Whether you want to further your education or get straight into work, a gap year can be a valuable and rewarding experience. In addition to this, you’ll see many employers and universities are now encouraging gap years, so you could enhance your prospects by taking some time to explore another country and culture.

Of course, choosing the right destination is key to making the most of your gap year. 

What’s more – participants from around the world travel to New Zealand for gap years; keen to experience everything the country has to offer. This means there’s a great network of fellow Letz Live participants (Explorers) waiting to share their experiences with you. You’ll meet friends for life and build a global network whilst you live, work and play on the iconic islands.
