Explore New Zealand’s Backyard like a Local
Explore Aotearoa New Zealand’s backyard through fresh eyes, with fresh vibes. Small group tours up to 12 people for those aged between 18 to 35, Backyard Roadies mission is to bring people together to create incredible travel experiences right here in New Zealand. Our purpose is about connection. Whether that’s connecting with friends – old and new, connecting with the fun and adventurous experiences, connecting with the land and its stories, or even just connecting with yourself, Backyard Roadies will guide you to discover New Zealand like a local
Backyard Roadies is the manifestation of one kiwi man, who after many years of travelling Southeast Asia, having conquered and survived backpacker life – both in work and play, and mastered the art of the ‘road trip’, has returned home to reimagine what it means to explore and experience New Zealand like never before.
Travelling with Backyard Roadies means getting amongst an authentic, grass roots trip led by a team of passionate and enthusiastic guides. Jason and the Backyard Roadsters launched this idea and were dedicated to helping other small tourism businesses around the country. In the wake of COVID19 where larger corporates and multinational travel groups pulled back and out of NZ, we’re diving in headfirst to rediscover and connect with New Zealand – all the people, places, and stories in our own Backyard for you.
