Get exclusive access to a collection of secret camp spots around New Zealand when you book with us.
We’ve partnered with New Zealand’s best intrepid travel writer Scott Cook to bring you a curated collection of the best freedom camping sites via the Campable app. Scott has handpicked for Wilderness guests the best places to stay in the wilderness including close to jaw dropping scenery, rare wildlife, natural thermal pools and even famous filming locations. We call them WilderNessts and we have three categories to help design a trip that suits you best:
Wilder spots are our serious get-away-from-it-all campsites. Off the grid. Off the beaten track. These are mostly incredibly scenic. You need to be a bit cautious with access, making sure you arrive before dark and walk the access route before driving in. Weather conditions can change quickly in some parts of New Zealand, and these spots might be on soft sand or grass.
Tamer spots are a bit closer to civilization. Some of these sites might be commercial, so you may be sharing or possibly paying, but we promise they are worth it. These are selected because they have something special to offer, such as must-do walks or must-see views. They might have hot pools, bike trails, wildlife, or even famous filming locations.
Indulger spots are for the glam campers, who fancy a bit of luxury. If you like the sound of stepping out of your motorhome into lovely hot, natural thermal pools next to a river in the mountains, or parking up next to a fabulous restaurant, this category is for you. Indulger sites are usually commercial so you will need to pay. But we promise it’s worth it.
When you book with us, we will share all these secret spots with you, so you can see New Zealand as a Wilderness explorer not as a tourist.
Learn more about Wildernessts and how to access them as our guest here.
Download FREE NZ Frenzy North and/or South PDF guide when you travel with us.
NZ Frenzy North Island and South Island are the only New Zealand travel guides we recommend. They’re full of hidden wonders (that only locals know about), as well as the more famous spots that you really don’t want to miss. Handy maps make it easy to find everything from spectacular waterfalls to hot springs and the best spots to watch sunsets. The PDF versions, normally retailed at $24, come free with every Wilderness trip.
North Island and South Island hard copy editions available for purchase here.
With bases in Christchurch and Auckland and no additional charge for travelling one way, we sometimes have motorhomes that need to be relocated. If you're flexible with your travel plans and you want to save on expenses, you may be interested in one of our campervan relocation deals.
A relocation won't work for everyone. Before you check out our current offers, check whether a campervan relocation fits your needs. You can also click on the following link to read our relocation Terms and Conditions.
