3 tips for your road trip in New Zealand
- Stop often
One thing we can recommend is that you stop more often than you plan. New Zealand has so many hidden gems and interesting spots – your route doesn’t have to be followed strictly.
- Park the camper and go trekking
You are in one of the most magical countries the world offers, and it makes no sense to experience it all behind the windows of your camper. You must bring your trekking shoes and stop at some of the amazing sights such as Milford Sound, Rotorua and Franz Josef Glaciers.
- Be open minded
No matter where you travel in New Zealand, you will meet backpackers from all over the world, all of whom have the same mission as you: to experience the best of New Zealand. Be open minded and participate in the social activities!
