Let’s face it—any trip to New Zealand is going to be great, so why choose a motorhome for your adventure? At Wilderness, we believe that hiring a motorhome is the best way to collect your remarkable moments while experiencing all that our country has to offer. You’ll get to explore at your own pace with all the comforts of home, while still having the option to get off the beaten path.
By hiring a Wilderness motorhome for your adventure, you'll be free to take on New Zealand on your terms. You get to set your own schedule and roam wherever the road takes you. Holidaying in a campervan means freedom and flexibility. Fell in love with Lake Wakatipu? Stay an extra night. Want to see the place where the Lord of the Rings movies were filmed? Plug Hobbiton into your GPS and hit the road. There’s always an amazing experience to be had, and hiring a motorhome lets you be spontaneous.
Say goodbye to the hassle of booking rental cars, managing hotel reservations, or struggling to find an Airbnb. When you hire a Wilderness motorhome, you’ll have transportation and accommodation covered in one convenient step. Hiring from our fleet is like having an on-the-go, luxury hotel room as your home away from home.
You can’t beat the convenience of a motorhome—you can come and go as your please with your hotel room on wheels. Imagine pulling over whenever you like to pop on the kettle for a cup of tea while the kids use the bathroom and stretch their legs, or parking up to watch the sunset over the ocean. With a full-service bathroom, fully equipped kitchen, and comfortable sleeping and living areas, you’ll enjoy all the creature comforts you need to make your time on the road enjoyable. (And you won’t need to get any sort of special licence to drive our vehicles.)
Why be stuck with the same view from a hotel room window when you’re on holiday? In a Wilderness motorhome, you can bask in new vistas each and every day without the hassle of packing and unpacking each time.
New Zealand has a fantastic range of campgrounds and holiday parks where you can stay in your motorhome (many of which are beside beaches or lakes). If you’re feeling extra adventurous, you can even try freedom camping and take the road less travelled on your path to remarkable moments.
Freedom camping is when you stay on land that has minimal or no facilities. Many freedom camping spots are on beaches, near lakes or native bush, or have spectacular mountain views. Some are even within a stone’s throw of New Zealand’s best day walks.
You’ll find freedom camping spots all around New Zealand, but rules differ from region to region, so be sure to check signs or stop by the local visitor centre (i-SITE) if you’re unsure. (You can be fined if you stay in places where freedom camping isn't allowed.)
Freedom camping requires that your vehicle be certified self-contained. The entire fleet at Wilderness has this certification, so when you hire one of our motorhomes you’ll be able to freedom camp overnight at incredible locations other travellers might never get to see.
