New Zealand size compared to …

Do you know the size of New Zealand? We often notice our motorhome renters underestimate the land size, we see itineraries that involve driving 4500 km in just two weeks!
To experience New Zealand, it is good to understand our land size (massive), road conditions (not that flash), and layout (single lane bridges are still part of our ‘highways’).

Have a look at these images, the real size of New Zealand, compared to continents like the USA and Europe. Why do we want to show you this? Sure you can set off on a road trip driving for hours every day to destinations you don’t have time to explore. BUT, is this why you want to visit New Zealand, or, do you want to get a feeling of the space, nature and culture it has to offer. If the latter is the case, maybe these images will make you plan your trip in a different way.

Whatever you choose to you, fine with us! We just want to assure your holiday brings you what you are looking for!
