        New Zealand is one of those countries where it's really popular to rent a campervan or motorhome in order to tour all the highlights. Campervan road trips differ a little bit from normal road trips, both in terms of what you drive and where you stay, but the main goal is essentially the same: to have the freedom to see/do as much as you want. Finding the perfect accommodation in vital for any trip, but the sheer quality and choice of the accommodations in the New Zealand ski areas makes this an awful lot easier. There is accommodation to suit all budgets, from cosy cabins for two, to huge lodges for groups and the customary luxury hotels for those who like to be spoilt while on holiday.

      Find everything in this comprehensive guide to Queenstown and the Wakatipu, including visitor information, accommodation, activities, entertainment, and local news.   The book of maps of New Zealand is great and detailed. The problem is, it was said to be a edition and it was a edition. There have been significant changes since the big earthquakes, so it is not accurate anymore/5(34).
