Auckland, New Zealand


Affordable Campervan Hire in Auckland with Hippie Camper


Auckland is New Zealand’s largest city and is a fantastic starting point for your road trip. In Auckland, you’re perfectly positioned to take off to the gorgeous beaches, islands and nature of the North Island. 

The beautiful legends of New Zealand and the inception of its two main islands are told as part of the traditional Māori people, who settled in the country long before the Europeans first arrived. According to the Māori, the North Islands were formed after the brothers of Māui, a demigod, fought over a great fish that he pulled from the sea. The fish was chopped into pieces, creating what is now known to be Te Ika-a-Māui, the traditional name of the island group. Though the tales may only be myth, the breathtaking beauty of the North Island is definitely not.

Before you venture out of Auckland, there’s plenty to enjoy in the city itself. Explore Auckland’s attractions such as the museums, the Auckland Zoo and the Sky Tower, which if you’re brave enough, you can take the leap and bungee jump from it! Take to the water to explore the Hauraki Gulf and islands, diving into as many activities such as kayaking, jet boating, wildlife spotting and more.

The North Island of New Zealand is bursting with beauty ready to be discovered when you hire a campervan. You could view wild dolphins up close while visiting Northland and the Bay of Islands, or relax at the beach or a spa in The Coromandel. Stunning beaches abound in places like Hamilton and Waikato, as well as nature reserves and the famous Hobbiton, as seen in the Lord of the Rings trilogy. Do away with aches or stress in the hot thermal pools of Rotorua, and make sure you find time to visit Lake Taupo, the inland sea chock-full of activities and natural wonders. 

The majestic scenery will never cease to impress you, and by the end of your campervan road trip, you’ll be ready for the next! The magnificent landscapes and experience of the traditional Māori + the modern kiwi culture will provide plenty of unique memories.
