Why You Should Consider a Winter Road Trip in New Zealand

New Zealand is a perfect year-round travel destination. Snow-capped mountains, winter sports activities, and empty, open roads make winter an ideal time to hire a campervan and hit the road. Here are some of the reasons why you should consider a winter road trip in New Zealand.

1. Less crowds

Summer is an extremely popular time for travellers to visit New Zealand. As it is a small country, it can get pretty crowded with travellers during the warmer months. If you want to avoid this, skip the peak season and visit in winter. You can do almost all the same activities (even more!), plus you will have campgrounds and popular attractions mostly to yourself!

2. Save money

With fewer people travelling in winter, that also means everything gets a lot less expensive. New Zealand is not always a cheap country to travel to, so if you have a tight budget, travel in winter! You can experience the country in just the same way, and avoid those peak-season tourist prices. A campervan hire in winter is usually less than $50 a day, so there’s your transport and accommodation sorted at a fraction of the price.

3. Winter activities

There are certain things about New Zealand that draw in visitors from all over the world. Its winter activities are one of them. New Zealand’s impressive mountainous terrain makes great sporting activities. Skiing, snowboarding, sledding, and glacier hiking are some of the amazing activities you can do in winter.
