How I explored the Scenic Wonders of the South Island on my camper hire NZ holiday

The best way to explore the scenic wonders of New Zealand’s South Island is by Camper Van Hire. You can simply halt the vehicle and enjoy a cup of coffee wherever you wish. I was dumbfounded by the stunning vista of lofty, snow-capped mountains bounded by an electric-blue coloured glacial lake which unfolded before me on my NZ holiday.

I set off on an unhurried two-week Kiwi adventure around this country’s scenic South Island with my cheap motor home hire. I initiated my trip on the eastern side in Christchurch and then set off in the south-west towards Queenstown. This spot is a slice of bliss positioned in the shadows of a lofty mountain range which is aptly named the Remarkables.

The next phase of my NZ Campervan Holidays  took me towards the island’s impressive highlight, Milford Sound. The four-and-a-half-hour picturesque drive from Queenstown with my Rent Motorhome NZ was simply outstanding and is definitely among the most overwhelming drives worldwide. As soon as you arrive at Milford you will realize that this is among the most scenic destinations for a holiday worldwide.

Milford Sound is officially a fjord and is among New Zealand’s most well-known tourist destinations for a Camper Van Hire NZ holiday. It is a misty, creepy and unpopulated national park with verdant rainforest which clings perilously to the sides of mighty mountains. When it rains countless cascading waterfalls develop and slides down the majestic mountains off the cliff-faces.

After Milford I set out in the direction of the Franz Josef glacier. You can opt for the half-day hike however I opted for a calming massage and dip in a hot pool close by.

After this relaxing stopover I recommenced my trip and was enthralled as the seal-heavy beaches of the delightful northwest shoreline made way for the impressive vineyards of the Marlborough region. The final destination on my Camper Van Hire New Zealand holiday was the splendid Abel Tasman National Park with its sandy beaches and the dazzling emerald-green sea.

I was quite fond of my Hire Motorhome all through this journey as it was like a self-catering mobile hotel room. For added convenience there was a fridge, gas hob, kettle along with the essential cooking utensils. After rustling up a delicious meal in the galley I simply folded out a table from the camper van hire and dined al fresco.

I spent the nights parked in campsites that offered lots of amenities such as internet connection, laid-back hot showers and electricity. You can also refill your van’s drinking water tank and empty the lavatory.

There are lots of reasons why holidaymakers opt for a Camper Hire NZ holiday. It’s a flexible mode of travel as you are not required to book hotels beforehand and if you don’t like a particular place where you’d planned to stay overnight you can simply zoom off. Moreover you are more connected to the natural world with this mode of travel and can simply stop and admire the breathtaking views for as long as you wish. Enjoy your holiday!
