First Night in New Zealand
After an international flight, we suggest that you spend the first night in comfortable accommodation in order to begin your journey fresh.
Soft luggage is easier to manage in a motorhome or campervan. Hard baggage can be forwarded to your departure point by us at a small cost.
You will fit into most vehicles if your luggage consists of 1 hardcase and two soft bags per couple.
(Most cars in New Zealand are Japanese built, and are not as big as one maybe accustomed)
Interisland Ferry and Blue bridge between Wellington and Picton.
New Zealand camping grounds generally have excellent facilities, including laundry, cooking, bathroom facilities and a common room with TV etc
Please allow yourself sufficient time in New Zealand to see the country.
It may look a small country on the map, but by the nature of the roads it takes longer than expected to travel the distances, and there are so many pleasant distractions along the way.
Driving between Auckland and Wellington can take 10 to 11 hours.
Roads can be winding and narrow in places.
If time is short, you are best to see one area well rather than to make a speedy tiring journey in a few days to see little.
