Take a North Island Road Trip

Taking a motorhome or campervan holiday throughout New Zealand’s beautiful North Island is guaranteed to create holiday memories which will last forever.

Top 5 reasons to take a motorhome holiday

1. See the country in a different way

Staying at just one resort or hotel can’t compare with getting out on the wide open road and stopping wherever and whenever you want.

2. Create the ultimate playlist

Apollo Motorhomes’ newest vehicles offer ipod docking stations so sing loud – no one can hear you!

3. You make the itinerary

Forget costly ticket changes - there are no restrictions on how long you stay in each place – and you’re free to move along when you’ve been there and done it all.

4. Save your dollars

One simple cost and your transport, accommodation, dining and entertainment (well some of it) is all taken care of! If you stay in a fully equipped motorhome such as an Apollo Euro Deluxe, you can even freedom camp in approved locations. Your motorhome hire can also lead to great deals and discounts on popular tourism attractions.

5. Discover the unknown

Motorhome holidays give you flexibility to get off the tourism trail – hit the maps, or just go where the road takes you.

Best motorhome holiday destinations on the North Island

When you pick up your motorhome in Auckland, take some time to explore. The city offers a unique urban combination of modern art and architecture, historical Polynesian culture, fabulous food and wine hot spots and beautiful surrounding natural environments.

From Auckland, head north to the Bay of Plenty. Here you can get up close and personal with dolphins and marine life on a guided wildlife encounter. Spend some time in the Bay’s beautiful gardens or parks or relax in spas and thermal pools. If active holidays are your style, hit the great outdoors on a walk or trek, go for a round of golf or experience mountain biking.

South of Auckland, don’t miss Rotorua. Yes it’s smelly, but it’s still a must do, with the mystical sulphuric waters and hissing steam vents creating a fascinating environment. Just 80kms from Rotorua, visit Lake Taupo and enjoy one of the world’s largest freshwater lakes, formed by numerous volcanic eruptions. Other popular destinations on the North Island, include Palmerston, Thames, Coromandel and the beautiful Kapiti Coast. Finally, don’t forget to drop into Wellington, New Zealand’s capital city.
