Campervan and Motorhomes Rentals Wellington Airport
Known as ‘The Windy City’, Wellington is a fantastic place to start a tour of New Zealand’s North Island. Made up of lakes, volcanoes, rolling hills and stunning beaches, the island is best discovered by driving around in a luxury camper van.
Wellington is the cultural and artistic centre of the country, as well as the capital city. It has long-been a tourist hot spot, and its position at the very southern tip of the North Island makes it an ideal location to start a self-driving tour in a touring van. Camper vanning sites are plentiful and roads are in great shape.
