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.
Thousands of travellers have experienced Wilderness Way since 2004. Our 4.9 out of 5 rating from over 2,000 online reviews is testament to the fact we have delivered on our promise time and time again.
The motorhomes in our rental fleet are the same makes and models that we sell to Kiwis who are looking for that comfortable, luxury-feel, modern stylish set of wheels to explore their homeland. Our motorhomes are a cut above the average rental vehicle because we want you to be able to explore New Zealand in the same style and comfort that discerning Kiwis who own their motorhomes are used to.
In search of hidden gems? We will share with you our favourite secret spots which only locals know about so you can see New Zealand as a Wilderness explorer not as a tourist. 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. We call them WilderNessts.
We are Wilderness by name and Wilderness by nature. We grew up exploring the wilderness of New Zealand. It’s our mission to help you get off the beaten path. While other companies forbid you to explore the back roads, we encourage it! Our ‘no road restrictions’ policy means you can explore spectacular out-of-the-way spots that tourists really get to see.
Being a values based family business, we put people first - that’s you, our guest. So when you travel with us, we treat you like you are part of our family. From your first contact with us until we say farewell, we are committed to ensuring you have a remarkable experience - just like we would want for our family.
We’ve created a culture of remarkability that’s centred around our core values.
What is the most important thing in the world? It is people! It is people! It is people! We act with integrity, honesty and transparency while treating others with dignity and respect. Getting our team and our guests home safely is a top priority for us.
Every day we strive to do better as people, in our individual roles, and as a company.
We are committed to minimising our impact on the environment and giving back to the communities we are a part of.
In life, there are people who make things happen, and there are people who let things happen to them. Living above the line is all about making things happen through accountability and responsibility. We take ownership of every detail in each guest experience to help create those remarkable moments.
