So where could you go? If you’re in need of some R&R to escape city life, why not select some of the destinations from our epic wellness blog? Or maybe make it a mission to hit up the 10 best beaches from Auckland? If you and your S/O are feeling encouraged to DIY your own long weekend, how about a rom-com worthy romantic road trip?
If you’d prefer to head further afield, the double whammy of low season rates (and travellers) on an already underappreciated North Island road trip route makes for a brilliant quiet-ish getaway – perfect for switching life mode off and holiday mode on!
While you may think Auckland’s weather won’t be great for a winter/spring road trip, it’s currently 18 degrees c and sunny as we write this, proving that Auckland’s sunnier climes make for a good roadie any time of the year. Packing a few warmer clothes for the evening is a worthwhile trade with the empty beaches, quiet hiking trails, and crowd-less lookouts (better selfies FTW)!
Campgrounds are super chill in the cooler months, too. Nightly rates are generally lower, and you have more of their shared facilities to enjoy. Sometimes it’s fun to plan your roadie around NZ’s cool campgrounds. Check out this carefully crafted list of our favourite North Island campgrounds and see what inspires you. Low season campground rates plus JUCY discounts equal a cost-efficient made-up long weekend! Plus, our vehicles are super easy to drive, so no clunky beasts to park and even better – no expensive (even clunkier) petrol prices to factor in! Not sure what camper to choose? Check out this handy guide.
Another way to plan a road trip? With your gut! Not your gut instincts (though those definitely help), but your actual belly! Want to sample Auckland’s best pies? Or the North Island’s (possibly Aotearoa’s) best chippie? Or finally make it to Paeroa for a selfie under the L&P bottle (#travelgoals)? We’ve picked our fave places for the best Kiwi foods, and plenty are doable on an Auckland-based roadie!
With your affordable road trip basics taken care of, what are you going to use your other two genie wishes on? Choose wisely!
