1 Night Glentanner Park 1 Night Aoraki Court Motel

Jump to last reply

Dear All,
Thank you for your help last time . We’ve doubt and hope to get some feedback from the experienced travellers. 1. Should we split our 2 night stays in Gletanner Park into 1 night in Glentanner Park and 1 night in Aoraki Court Motel?
Our rationales: We ’ll be leaving Akaroa , lunch at Lake Tekapo and visit Mt John on the same day(29 Nov) , so by the time we reach Glentanner Park will be after 5 pm. The next morning we’ll travel to the Mt. Cook village. We think by doing us we save time and energy as Gletanner Park is about 20 km from Mt cook. Another reason is Mt cook weather day is always unpredictable and the enjoyable of the visit is weather dependable, so if come to worst, at least we have 1 day good day in Glentanner Park.
What do you think? Thank you in advance.
