Rugby tours to Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, and the United Kingdom are popular, as these regions share enthusiasm for the sport and offer an array of development opportunities. Rugby tours to the United States, Argentina, Chile and Canada are also very well regarded with standards of rugby increasing every year in these regions.
A rugby tour overseas is a perfect way of developing camaraderie and teamwork pre-season. Rugby is in Kiwi blood and so there is little wonder that there is a proud tradition of touring with rugby amongst schools in New Zealand. For Australian schools who want tough competition and short haul travel, there is no better place than Aotearoa.

||“Previously for school trips, I have always organised them myself - which has been time consuming and rather stressful trying to manage my general workload with the addition of the organisation of a trip and all the paperwork. Now though, I would definitely think twice about organising my own trip. It was great that Student Horizons took over the planning and built the itinerary for us. Initially I was hesitant about the cost, but the result was that it was well worth it and I would definitely recommend other schools to go down this route. The time in Australia was stress free and enjoyable.
... you have to put a lot of thought into taking on the task of organising a trip, ensuring you have the right balance of staff etc… and it is a huge time commitment. Student Horizons relieved a lot of this stress and meant that my time was not consumed with trying to put together an itinerary, find billets etc. Everything went smoothly and the organisational hassle was taken away. Thank you!”
