Welcome to the specialist backpacking section dedicated to travel agents wanting to offer information and experiences to backpackers who are planning a trip to the South Pacific.
Backpacking is defined as a form of low-cost, independent travel and is closely associated with ‘gap year travel’ where school leavers and university students, or people taking a break from their career, travel for extended periods often working on voluntary environmental and community projects.
Of importance in backpacking is a sense of authenticity and the South Pacific has a wealth of such experiences to offer the market such as local cultural activities including village tours and festivals, a range of volunteering opportunities in ‘off the beaten track’ locations as well as adventurous sporting activities to appeal to the youth traveller such as swimming, snorkelling, kayaking, rafting, sand boarding and trekking.
To make it easier for you to navigate this section, we have divided the information into the following sections:
1. Backpacker Profiles:
2. Backpacking Experiences:
3. Backpacking in the South Pacific:
