12-14 days South Island New Zealand itinerary

Jump to last reply

Hi, I need some help planning a tour in the south island of nz this coming november. I will be traveling with my folks! We would like to avoid the cities and concentrate more on a scenic holiday. We will be renting a car and these are the places I must have in the itinerary:

Landing in Christchurch ( how many days should I spend in this place? I have read that people are suggesting staying out of this place hmm ? )

Drive to Lake Tekapo (Mt Cook?)

Drive Wanaka

1. Will 1 day be enough at each of this places?

Then of course to Queenstown, I would like to try out water rafting, I assume this would be the right place to do it.

2. Should I add in Te Anau?

En route to Franz Josef Glacier. Seems like a long drive if I have to put Te Anau in.

Lastly I guess it would be Greymouth/Hotitika and then a train ride back.

So that's roughly what I have got now.
I would like to know how many days I should spend at each town, my folks and I usually cover our venues quite eagerly.
Wonder if anyone has anywhere better I should add in?

Thanks!!!
