An Itinerary For The Perfect Road Trip In New Zealand

An Itinerary For The Perfect Road Trip In New Zealand

With its two individual islands, New Zealand offers plenty of fascinating destinations to explore. On North Island you will discover sunny holiday destinations, long windswept beaches and rolling countryside. By contrast, South Island is a rugged wilderness, dotted with high mountain ranges, majestic glaciers, and wild canyons. These Kiwi locations make ideal starting points for road trips in New Zealand.​

  1. Auckland

    This expansive city on North Island has plenty to offer visitors. Dominating the skyline is the Sky Tower, an ideal viewing platform from which you can gaze at the city's iconic Rangitoto Island or the grassy crater of Mount Eden. Families can tour the city by hopping on a city tour bus, which stop at all the main attractions, including Auckland Museum.

  2. Rotorua

    Situated inland on North Island, Rotorua is a must-see destination on your New Zealand road trip. This natural centre of volcanic activity means you can get up close with geothermal features, spouting geysers and bubbling hot pools. Tour one of the geothermal parks, indulge in a Polynesian spa, or take part in an exciting activity, such as kayaking.

  3. Wellington

    At the southwestern end of North Island, Wellington is an ideal stop off for all road trips in New Zealand. As the country's capital, it has a vibrant city lifestyle to discover. Wellington Harbour is an ideal spot for a waterfront stroll. Alternatively, you can climb Mount Victoria Lookout for impressive scenic views. Wellington is the perfect place to complete your tour of North Island before continuing by Interislander ferry across the Cook Strait to reach South Island.

  4. Christchurch

    South Island's biggest city is the ideal base for exploring its east coast. This picturesque city is reminiscent of a quaint English town, complete with tranquil urban parks. Famed for its heritage trams, visitors can tour the city's attractions, including the Canterbury museum, Cathedral Junction and New Regent Street.

  5. Queenstown

    Nestled on the shores of Lake Wakatipu, Queenstown is the main tourist hub for exploring South Island's rugged centre. This town is an adventure playground where you can try a wide range of activities, including white water rafting, bungee jumping, and sky diving. Just a short drive away are many of New Zealand's most scenic wonders, including Mount Cook, Milford Sound, and the Franz Josef Glacier.
