Creating remarkable experiences for more than 18 years

Making every Wilderness experience a remarkable one is our guiding philosophy. We call it The Wilderness Way. It’s our shared commitment and our way of thinking and acting that makes each guest experience uniquely memorable.

The Wilderness Way starts back at the beginning - with the founders. Our story is the story of a family business built on shared values, experiences, attitudes and aspirations. These elements formed the foundation of what we believe and how we do things.

Why Choose Wilderness

At Wilderness, we put you the guest at the centre of everything we do. That’s the Wilderness Way. It’s not just about our high end motorhomes — although we know you’ll love those. It’s also about the care we show you, and everything we do to enable you, to collect your own remarkable moments.


Total Comfort

Relax in a luxurious motorhome

The motorhome you’ll hire won’t be a basic rental. Expect a modern stylish RV that’s maintained to the highest standard of care. Plus your beds will already be made up.

No Road Restrictions

Explore off-the-beaten-track

As our guest, you’re encouraged to get out there and experience parts of New Zealand that few others get to enjoy. We have a no road restrictions policy — so you can seek out the adventures that others miss.
