New Zealand Itineraries

The secret has been out for quite some time now: New Zealand is one of the most beautiful travel destinations on the planet. But what’s not as widely known is that this is a country of small towns, winding roads and hidden gems. It’s easy to pass up incredible sights and experiences just because they’re not immediately evident. That’s why we’ve put together a selection of NZ road trip itineraries. Get the most out of your time in this picture perfect country with guides that include both major attractions and secret delights. From the crystal clear fiords and soaring peaks of the South Island to the cosmopolitan coastal cities and lush green fields of the North Island, these itineraries allow you to really enjoy the freedom that an NZ campervan rental can afford. Get inspired, make a plan and hit the road - adventure is right around the corner.
