Visit Mackenzie basin with Mighway

Hire a campervan in Mackenzie basin


Mackenzie is a mountainous region in the center of New Zealand’s South Island. This alpine paradise is home to grand outdoor adventures against scenic backdrops like Lake Tekapo and Mount Cook. There is a certain air of the rugged outdoors throughout much of Mackenzie’s culture. And indeed, this area is one of the less-populated parts of the South Island. But with a rich agricultural community, with many small farms and tons of options for the outdoor enthusiast, Mackenzie is an unforgettable destination for your winter getaway. Thanks to its particular feeling of being off the beaten path, Mackenzie doesn’t get crowded with tourists the way that some other regions might. This means that you can enjoy the uninterrupted beauty of nature in peace - perfect for a romantic getaway or solo excursion! The climate in Mackenzie features a fairly even seasonality. Long, hot summers give way to gloriously beautiful autumns that fast into crisp and snowy winters. Because of its mountainous terrain, the lush Alps have snow cover year-round. You’ll want to pack for warmth anytime of the year, but particularly in winter when the unexpected snowstorm can strike. Mackenzie is an awesome destination no matter what your fancy, and one of the best ways to travel through Mackenzie during the winter time is with a motorhome. Hire a campervan with Mighway, and let the journey unfold!
