One-way rentals from Christchurch to Auckland

Visit Christchurch and you’ll see why The Garden City was one of Lonely Planet’s Top 10 cities (number 6) in 2013. Meet kiwis and other rare New Zealand species at the Orana Wildlife Park, enjoy the immense sandy beach of Pegasus Bay, or live through a simulated Antarctic storm in the International Antarctic Centre. To see the South Island’s National and Forest Parks, just take the long way to Blenheim, at the heart of the wine-growing Marlborough Region. From Picton, cross the Cook Strait and you’re in Wellington on The North Island (for the second half of your trip, please see ‘Wellington to Auckland’).

649 KM

One-way rentals from Wellington to Auckland

Check out Wellington’s Museum of New Zealand, or take a hike up Mount Victoria for an unforgettable view of the city and harbour. When you head north, the central road passes two of the island’s volcanoes – each over 2 km in height – and you can even take a boat to White Island and venture inside an active volcano’s crater! South of Aukland, you’ll find the Hamilton-Waikato region, home to ‘Hobbiton’ in the Lord of the Rings films. Auckland itself provides a great base for some island-hopping, so visit the hot springs on Great Barrier Island, the lava caves on Rangitoto Island, or the amazing birdlife on Tiritiri Matangi Island.

483 KM

One-way rentals from Christchurch to Queenstown

West of Christchurch, Lord of the Rings fans might recognise parts of the Southern Alps – and anyone can appreciate the frozen beauty of Glacier Country. The Aoraki / Mount Cook National Park is home to Mount Cook itself, a full 3755m high. The ski season usually spans June to October, so time your trip right and put your skis / board to the test: if your skills (and your budget) can cope, you can even go heli-skiing and experience some real off-piste action!
