Everyone wants to see New Zealand in summer – between November to March New Zealand is the #1 campervan holiday destination in the world and holidaymakers from all around the world are willing to spend big $$$ for it!

Here is the thing – New Zealand is just as amazing in Winter as it is in summer – here are our top reasons:


Campervans go for as little as $29/day between May to September – that’s right $29/day – a meal will cost you more so it’s a great time for bargain hunters!


For all those winter freaks out there – New Zealand is a top location for winter sports – skiing/snowboarding – you name it. Top locations include Coronet, Cadrona, Treble Cone, Mt Hutt and Turoa! Park your camper on a powered campsite, heat it up and cook some delicious “Gluehwein” – it’s like a winter party in your campervan!


There is nobody around – well except in the snowfields – so you can really relax and chill out – you will love it.


You can get some of the most amazing imagery during winter – especially for those photography fans out there. The mountains & lakes will take your cold breath away!


Especially if you are from Europe you love hot springs – there is nothing better than sitting in a hot pool in cold weather – snowing – and winter scenery! Areas like Rotorua and Hamner Springs are highly recommended!
