New Zealand is a top destination for backpackers and quite rightly so. You’ve got everything from the breathtaking scenery of places like Lake Tekapo to crazy adrenaline pumping activities like bungee jumping and white water rafting! Undoubtedly one of the best ways to explore this beautiful country is by hiring a campervan because the country is set up perfectly for campervan travel and nothing beats travelling at your own pace. There is so much awesome stuff to see and do here and we thought we’d start off with some top destinations in the South Island. Christchurch is a great starting point as most international airlines fly there and its location is the perfect place to set you off on your road trip
