New Zealand Island Explorer

21 Day Suggested Itinerary | Christchurch to Auckland by Motorhome

Be blown away by spectacular scenery as you travel through the North and South Islands of New Zealand on a motorhome adventure. Relish in the freedom of planning your route as you go, and enjoy an ever-changing landscape as you drive past rolling hills, stunning stretches of beaches and ancient volcanoes and mountains. New Zealand has so much to do and discover from miles of cycling and walking trails waiting to be explored to a variety of wildlife from small kiwi birds to enormous humpback whales, and some of the finest food and wine that has ever touched your lips.

Your adventure starts in the second largest city of New Zealand, Christchurch, which sits at the edge of the Canterbury Plains and boasts a backdrop of rolling hills and the Pacific Ocean. Take time to see the highlights of the South Island, from whale watching in Kaikoura, to visiting one of the many wine regions for a wine tasting tour, to swimming with dolphins in Akaroa and soaking up the fascinating sights of the Waimakiriri River Gorge, the Southern Alps and the Old Bruner Mines.

Once you have explored the South Island, take the ferry over to the North Island and continue your journey. Visit Lake Taupo and choose from a variety of watersports from white water rafting to kayaking, or hop on a scenic cruise across the clear water. Head to the Hamilton and Waikato region and discover middle-earth movie magic at the Hobbiton Movie Set, and marvel at Waitomo’s caves filled with twinkling glowworms and limestone formations. Your last stop will be the cosmopolitan city of Auckland, where you will have the chance to pick up souvenirs at the street markets, and head to the harbour which is home to some of Auckland’s finest restaurants where you can savour New Zealand’s seafood and local wine.
