What to bring on your winter road trip holiday to New Zealand

 

New Zealand is a winter wonderland. Whether you’re exploring the winding mountain roads of the South Island or the great, undulating hills of the north, you’ll see craggy peaks lit up with brilliant hues of white. Unless you visit north of Auckland, where it’s a subtropical climate, the chances you are going to see Kiwi country with a plentiful dollop of snow.

If you are renting a car and going on a NZ winter road trip, ensure that you have these items packed and ready.

With a landmass of around 270,500 square-kilometres split between its two major sections (aptly named the North and South Islands) it is about the size of the UK, but with only 4.5 million people the population is less than half that of New York City – that makes for grand wide open spaces and absolutely stunning countryside. A self-driving paradise!
