Student Travel Programs in New Zealand
Rustic Pathways has been offering programs in New Zealand for adventure seekers since 1993. Our programs here encompass the best of the country’s famed extreme sports activities such as skydiving, zip lining, bungy jumping, and more! Students who travel to New Zealand also get an introduction to Kiwi and Maori cultures and leave with a checked-off bucket list and an appreciation for this picturesque country.
Meet Team Fiji
Born in New Zealand and living between Australia and Fiji, Evan has helping shape Rustic Pathways since joining us in 1995. With a degree in business, a love of the outdoors, and a deep commitment to Fijian communities, Evan proudly manages our South Pacific operations. When not at our Eco-Lodge Base, you can find Evan spending time with his wife Lisa and playing with their two young boys, Henry and Sam. He also races competitively in long-distance running events.
Bethany has been part of our Fiji team since 2011 and loves sharing her passion for the island culture with our students. Born and raised in Los Angeles, she took a gap year and spent time living in Tokyo and London before attending The George Washington University. An avid soccer player, Bethany has extensive experience both playing and coaching, and she can frequently be spotted challenging the locals to a pickup game on the Eco-Lodge field.
