You’ll also find it a friendly and safe destination. The Kiwi out-going and carefree attitude is contagious, so sit back, relax and enjoy your holiday of a lifetime.

Driving options

When it comes to travelling by road around New Zealand, there are two common options to choose from:

  • Hiring a rental car and staying in hotels
  • Exploring the country in a motorhome; combining transport and accommodation

The first option offers a structured holiday that often works for travellers who want to stay in urban areas or in one place for some time. These types of holidays may also suit those who want to book dates in advance.

Holidaying in a motorhome is focused on flexibility and freedom. This option allows you to explore places off the beaten track and to go or stay in places as long as you like, without the hassle of packing each time. Enjoy your own routine, while travelling in luxurious comfort.

Driving a motorhome is as easy as driving a car. You can rest assured, all Wilderness motorhomes have the added safety features of modern European cars, including ABS and airbags.

Which beautiful location?

New Zealand motorhome holidays allow you to be spontaneous so you can do what you want, in your own time.

If you’re interested in motorhome camping, choose from freedom camping areas, Department of Conservation and regional park campsites and commercial campgrounds.

Each type of camping has advantages and most motorhome adventurers opt for a mix of these choices. Whatever options you choose, you can be sure you’ll be in a beautiful setting and will enjoy comfort and style along the way.<
