Think you might enjoy a glampervan trip around New Zealand?  You may be wondering, and rightly so, what is a glampervan?  Some people like to glamp which is glamourous camping, but in this case, you’ll be using a fun campervan.  It is combining the fun of touring the country while using a campervan, but adding a glamourous touch to give you a little more luxury.  Upgrade your ordinary trip to a prestigious glampervan trip by knowing what to pack, eat, and glampgrounds that you should book.

Glampervan Packing

When packing for your glampervan adventure, you will want to create a checklist of all of the things that you will need when glamping.  Since you are not going to have to worry about lugging everything around in a pack on your back, you can pack all those little things that make your life glamorous.  You may want to consider bringing your normal toiletries, makeup case, fun and functional clothing, luxurious bedding, and entertainment items.  If you will have access to electricity, you can bring along things like fans, tablets, and hair dryers to fully realize your glamping.    

Glampervan Foods

When you go glamping, you should always look for ways to make your stay that much more luxurious.  An adventure is fun, but an adventure with great food is always better.  Spice up some typical camping standbys by adding some glitz to them.  For instance, instead of baked beans go with Tuscan Beans where you use cannellini beans, garlic, sage, rosemary, and olive oil.  Another fun glamping treat is Grilled Pinwheel Steaks and Roasted Broccoli.  These steaks are rolled around cheese and herbs for a delicious dose of protein after a long hike.


When looking for the best places to camp your glampervan, you might want to find the campsites and holiday parks with all the bells and whistles.  These sites may cost you a bit more, but you can expect to have those extra little perks like electricity, WiFi, swimming pools, spa pools, a bar, laundry, hot showers, or even courtesy transport.  These premium facilities may cost you a little extra a night, but the features that they offer should be well worth it.   

New Zealand is a land of beauty, and one of the best ways to see that beauty is by enjoying being in nature.  Not everyone is up for roughing it, so add a little sparkle to your adventure with a trip in a glampervan.  It’s good for the ecology of the land and good for your soul.
