Christchurch Branch Location

The Māori people, the first settlers of New Zealand before the first Europeans paved the way for the development we now see, have shared some interesting stories about the beginning of the country and its two main islands. They say that the South Island is the boat the demigod Maui used when he pulled the great fish (the North Island) from the waters. In Māori culture, the lesser island is named Te Waka a Maui which means “Maui’s Canoe”.

Perhaps it is Maui to be thanked for the breathtaking beauty that the South Island possesses.

Begin your road trip in Christchurch and go wild on adventures courtesy of the destinations therein. Take charge of your trip with a campervan from Apollo Motorhome Holidays and go places at your own pace. Go whale watching, wind surfing, mountain biking and do all sorts of water and land activities imaginable. Climb New Zealand’s highest peak—Aoraki Mount Cook, visit the picture-perfect villages of Banks Peninsula or simply discover why they have nicknamed the country’s second largest city, “The Garden City”.

In Christchurch, never forget about the food culture. Unique dining experiences await on board the Christchurch Tramway Restaurant or go to Pedro’s House of Lamb and ask for their mouthwatering specialty.

Go beyond the city and fill your social media accounts with stunningly beautiful photos of New Zealand’s South Island. Drive the scenic roads to locations like Nelson, found in the northwest; Marlborough for great-tasting wine, the Waitaki and many other beautiful destinations down below.

Travelling in New Zealand has never this easy and comfortable! With a fleet of custom-built rental campers, explore South Island’s terrains, whatever the weather may be. Escape with Apollo vehicles guaranteed to be aged below three years. Worry not because we never compromise service, quality or safety. Our branches in NZ are found in Auckland and Christchurch and all over the world in Australia and USA.

Our star RV Campervan was relatively new and very clean. It was a terrific place to live for 10 days with my husband and 2 children. NZ is a terrific place to travel by Campervan.
