If you want to see New Zealand, and see it properly, you should plan a road trip exploring both the North Island and the South Island. Each island is vastly diverse from the other, but the thing they do have in common, is they are both perfect destinations for campervan travel. But with so many great landscapes to see, mountains to climb, and places to camp, it can be a little hard to choose where to prioritise, especially if you are short on time.

We have put together this 21-day Auckland to Queenstown road trip itinerary, highlighting our favourite must-see destinations along the way.
