The Road Less Travelled.. Starting at Auckland!

Been there, done that, bought the t-shirt? Think again! New Zealand’s North Island still has some surprises up its sleeve. For something a little different

First things first, travellers. Mode of transportation. It has to be a campervan, no questions asked. Check out Hippie Camper for a very cool, very comfortable range of 2- berth relocation devices (aka Campervans), designed to give your holiday a feel-good vibe from day 1. You are road-tripping! See, already life has become different. Let the journey begin…

Cool thing 1 – Sample New Zealand beer. What? Yes, you heard us, the local brews are definitely worth a dedicated afternoon, and Hallertau, just out of Auckland, offers an impressive few drops. Drive sensibly afterward people.

Cool thing 2 – Enjoy live NZ Rugby. Eden Park is the country’s largest stadium, and with a game on any given weekend, you’ll feel like a local in no time.

Cool thing 3 – Surf. In New Zealand? Yup. Raglan, less than two hours drive from Auckland, is famous for its surf school and big breaks.

Cool thing 4 – Get familiar with New Zealand’s warrior spirit during a Ngapuhi Cultural Waka (canoe) tour on the Waitangi River. National Geographic totally rates this tour.

Cool thing 5 – Napier – this amazing art deco town feels like you’ve walked into the set of the Great Gatsby.
