Arthur's Pass - He Traveled Around New Zealand In A Camper Van… This Is What He Saw.

Over a year ago, a Belgian named Johan Lolos left his home country to travel the world. He has been on the road ever since.

Perhaps the highlight of his trip so far was his three-month excursion to New Zealand in October. Sleeping in an inexpensive camper van, Lolos traveled around the New Zealand countryside, slept under the stars, and took some absolutely breathtaking photos - all while adhering to a strict budget.

Check out his photos below - not only will you have travel envy, but you'll learn a thing or two about New Zealand's amazing landscapes!

Arthur's Pass
Arthur's Pass is a township located in the Southern Alps on the South Island, and it has some of the most breathtaking views in the world. Some nights, Lolos slept in a tent instead of the van.

In Arthur's pass, Lolos spent most of his time walking around and observing the gorgeous scenery, including this amazing field of sheep, which is New Zealand's national animal.

Otago Peninsula
It was here when a surprising thing happened on Lolos' adventure: Though he hadn't originally wanted to take a boat tour, he forced himself to participate. It was worth his while: A trio of killer whales swam directly up to his boat!

Tongariro Alpine Crossing
Recognize this treacherous summit? It's actually part of the setting from The Lord of the Rings. These slopes were used to film scenes when the hobbits were making their way to Mordor.

And, just as it was for the hobbits in Mordor, the Tongariro Alpine Crossing was incredibly dangerous for Lolos. Most of the slope faces are entirely ice.
