Travel is much more required for a human being to breathe in a new way and doing tons of different things. For a few it is simply a desire to get away and for some it is a passion to get away for some time to break their monotonous routine. Therefore the place should be carefully decided, and if one is running from all the chaos in life, then the best option is New Zealand.

This place is a home to a variety of thrilling adventure sports like skydiving, bungee jumping, river sledding and jet boating. New Zealand would win anyone with its world famous wines. Most of the distance is covered by road so what is better than renting a Campervan Rental in Hobart.

#1.The Bay of Islands

The Bay of Islands located north of Auckland are a must see on your trip to New Zealand. Just imagine the blue-green waters that are surrounded by white sand beaches, the sun and tropical islands. The central town of Bay of Islands is Paihia and is an ideal spot to base for your time in Northland. Paihia is a busy little town with plenty of hostels, heaps of bars and sits directly on the bay. There is no shortage of activities here, spend the day sailing around the islands, dolphin watching, diving, kayaking or simply soaking up the sun on Paihia beachfront.

#2. Coromandel Peninsula


The Coromandel Peninsula is a ferry ride for an hour to three-hour drive away from Auckland. It’s again a weekend escape from the busy lives of the cities of New Zealand’s North Island. This also offers up a mesmerizing combination of beaches, fishing villages and has great hiking options with the mountainous spine splitting the peninsula in half.
