Planning Your New Zealand Campervan Trip

Campervan Trip: The Ultimate New Zealand Holiday

There is nothing quite like coming around the corner in a campervan to find a hidden lake nestled beside a primeval rainforest or losing your breath as you crest the brow of a steep hill and take in the sweeping beaches that seem to last forever. Getting off the beaten track in a Wilderness motorhome is one of the best ways to explore on your New Zealand holiday.

We asked Scott Cook, New Zealand’s best travel book writer, to help us give you the best advice about planning your New Zealand campervan hire holiday. Here are his insights:

Planning a significant visit to New Zealand is complicated, no doubt about it. There are SO many choices to make about when, where, and how long to visit because New Zealand has such an astounding variety of natural, cultural, and adrenalized activities to choose from. Nowhere else in the world will you find such a variety of must-see natural features clustered into such a small land area.

It’s impossible to make one set of recommendations that will fit all travellers. Everyone is faced with similar “up-front” decisions like when to visit and how long to stay so I’ll address those first. Then you can get into the fun part of individualizing your own itinerary according to your personal travel desires.
