Lonely Planet New Zealand’s Best Trips

Lonely Planet New Zealand’s Best Trips

‘Nothing behind me, everything ahead of me, as is ever so on the road.’ Jack Kerouac

Road-tripping is our shtick. For the last decade or so we’ve travelled more than 100 days around Aotearoa each year, usually in our little campervan nicknamed the Hiace Hilton.

For this first edition of New Zealand’s Best Trips, we wrote all the South Island trips along with the introductory chapters including tips and tricks. It would have been pretty easy to rehash the tried and true, but that’s now how we roll.

Read this book and you’ll find fresh touring routes including ‘Sunshine & Wine’, ‘Two Passes’ and the ‘East Coast Express,’ all packed with legendary landscapes as well as recommendations for what to do, and where to eat and stay along the way.
