Wellington is the perfect place to start your van life road trip, with international and domestic flights landing at Wellington International Airport. The city is compact and quaint, with a working harbour, sandy beaches and a vibrant CBD. The surrounding rolling hills are a rich lush green, dotted with small timber houses, and are a very inviting place to drive around and get lost in.
With camping available close to the city, you can venture in to explore tourist attractions like the Wellington Cable Car and The Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa. On the city outskirts are the Zealandia Ecosanctuary, a unique urban fenced ecosanctuary that is home to native birds, lizards, trees and plants.
The hills surrounding Wellington make for beautiful hiking as well as driving, with numerous forest and coastal trails available within a short drive of the city centre. Wellington is also a great place to make your base while you try out New Zealand’s world-famous activities aimed at adrenaline junkies. The harbour and hills make the perfect locations to try kayaking, 4WDing, and mountain biking, while the nearby Adrenaline Forest Wellington offers rope and obstacle courses.
The natural landscape surrounding the city is just as impressive as the city itself, which means campervan hire in Wellington is the ideal way to get the best of both worlds. Take your pick of Camplify’s vans suitable to every traveller and hit the road to explore Wellington in style. They offer easy booking and payment options and most importantly, a network of owners who love their vans and want to make sure you do too.
