New Zealand Winter Wilderness by Motorhome

by Liam Costar | Jul 19, 2016

Motorhome Canterbury Campervan Camping
We touch down in Christchurch and are welcomed with the sun shining but with a chill in the air, winter is definitely setting in.
Lake pukaki Motorhome freedom
Our journey begins in our Wilderness camper perfect for your dream road trip. What better way to start a road trip than to head straight for the tallest mountain in New Zealand - Mount Cook.
Tour NZ Mt Cook

We make our way into the mountains and we start to feel the temperature drop, you know you're heading right in the heart of the mountains when you can feel the different temperature change come through the camper, time to dial the heating up... ahhh nice and toasty now!
Mt Cook National Park
What a place it is, the Mount Cook National Park is amazing so much to see and do. Not only is this a place to visit just during the day but at night it shows off its beauty with the buzzing stars lighting up the mountains that surround you.
Lake Pukaki Campervan Camping
First light, we were straight out the door en-route to the heart of the Southern Alps, the Hooker Lake with Mirror views of Mt Cook and all her glory.

Hooker Valley
We head in on foot and with no delay our bodies can feel the negative 6 degree temperature freezing up our hands but all that feeling is forgotten when you reach the lake itself, a spot that truly must be seen with your own eyes.

Mt Cook Camping

Back to our toasty Wilderness camper. Craving more scenic views so what a better place to head to than Wanaka. 
That Wanaka Tree One of the most unique towns you'll find in the world. The beauty of the Wilderness motorhome is "home is where you park it". We choose a spot with the lake in the backyard surrounded in snow capped mountains, no hotel can match the star rating of all the stars that we could see outside our camper that night, "can't get much better than this".

Roys Peak Tramping Hike

What would be a South Island road trip with out seeing Queenstown? Where mountains meet beer and burgers, can you ask for much more?? So onwards to Queenstown it was. We found ourselves perched in a spot with a two minute walk to the main town, once again wouldn't have been possible without the camper making everything so easy. 

Wanaka at Night Camping

Our journey continued with finding more and more unique views, this country is truly breathtaking. There was one more location that had to be seen, it was in deep of the Arthur's Pass one of the most scenic drives out!

The Devils Punchbowl, the best waterfall my eyes have set sight on. This spot hits all your senses at once, with your eyes you can just see the abundance of colour and you can just hear the power of the water tumbling down onto the rocks and you can feel all the mist of the falls from afar due to the amount that it hurls down!

It truly was an awesome time, thank you New Zealand and thank you Wilderness Motorhome for the opportunity as this trip wouldn't have been possible without you guys.
