New Zealand is one of the most family-friendly destinations in the world. Stunning nature, interesting history, Maori culture, easy access to glaciers, mesmerizing volcanoes and amazing beaches. We have traveled a month with our then 1-year-old in a campervan, and share our experiences with you below to help you plan an unforgettable holiday in New Zeland with kids.
We spent one-month traveling in a campervan using mostly free campsites across New Zealand with our then 1-year-old baby and explored and hiked beautiful places across both the North and South Island. Here are some of our favorite NZ travel photos. Let’s explore these stunning islands through photography!
New Zealand is one of the best countries for freedom camping. The facilities are present and maintained across both islands, you just need a vehicle to reach these locations. We traveled with our NSC (non-self-contained) campervan from North to South Island. If you travel with a self-contained camper, you have even a bigger variety of locations where you can stay.
