The difference in diversity between New Zealand’s North and South Island is so big that we strongly recommend you to explore both islands. The rugged South Island, with its wild coast, nature, wildlife and glaciers is almost incomparable with the sloping North Island with white beaches and beautiful bays. But there are so many more differences between the two islands, which you just have to experience yourself.
Although a camper trip through New Zealand equals ultimate freedom, it is desirable to record at least one thing, the ferry crossing between the North and South Island. Certainly in New Zealand’s summer period it is advisable to book this at least a few months in advance. And not last minute when you are in New Zealand yourself. In this way you ensure yourself of a favourable departure time and you can optimally enjoy one of the most beautiful ferry crossings in the world. We will of course be happy to help you book the crossing.

The crossing from Wellington to Picton, or vice versa, is tipped as one of the most beautiful in the world. The 92-kilometer journey, which lasts about three hours, gained fame mainly due to the section through the fjords of the Marlborough Sounds. Here you notice that the crossing is not only a necessary evil, but also an activity in itself. As a fjord is perhaps more beautiful from the water than from the land. Keep your fingers crossed for nice weather, so that you can experience all this epicenes outside on the sun deck.
