Why travelling New Zealand in a motorhome should be on your bucket list

A New Zealand road trip is the perfect way to explore such an exciting country. From amazing active volcanoes like White Island to dramatic alpine mountains in the South. Deep fiords of Milford and Doubtful Sound to gorgeous coasts and high waterfalls on the North Island, you'll never run out of new things to see. Whether you are journeying through landscapes that blend magnificent beaches, sprawling farmlands and geothermal wonders in the North Island or winding your way through the vineyards of Nelson, Marlborough or Waitaki Valley in the South Island, a motorhome is the perfect way to do it.



With your own home-from-home on wheels you’ll find a vast array of campsites and holiday parks and have the freedom to stop where and when you want, for as long as you want. To get up close and personal with nature and the wonderful wildlife; to linger on that secluded beaches watching the sunrise or canoe by cathedral-like caves; to explore wonderful rainforests, experience Māori culture and enjoy the New Zealand life to the full.

Stop at wineries along the way

Combine some of the world’s finest wines and the freedom to travel to these sought-after regions to your hearts content and you’ve got a wine-lovers paradise. Extending 1000 miles from sub-tropical Northland down to Central Otago, New Zealand’s wine regions set the bar competitively high. Imagine waking to sweeping views across a beautiful vineyard; being able to meet the vintners and purchase the freshest local produce to cook in your own piece of heaven. We’ve a selection of handpicked vineyards where you can do just that, they aren’t RV parks or camp grounds, there’s no electric hook-up – you really are in a vineyard, in splendid isolation.

Travel and accommodation rolled into one

The worst part of holidays has got to be packing, unpacking and repacking again. But with a motorhome holiday, your travel and accommodation are rolled up into one lovely package, so there’s no need to unpack! Your home on wheels will mean you get to stay as little or as long as you like… and there are no check-in or check-out times.

Diverse scenery

New Zealand has such a diverse and contrasting landscape in a relatively small area that you will be spoilt for choice. Explore the stunning scenery, lush green landscapes and clear blue skies. From the beautiful lighthouse sitting on Nugget Point in the Otago region of the South Island overlooking rocky islets, to the marine reserve that is Cathedral Cove located on the Coromandel Peninsula. No matter where you are in New Zealand you are never far from natural beauty.
