14 days in NZ in February

Jump to last reply

I know there are other posts on this but a search couldn't quite find what I was looking for, so I apologize for any redundancy! My husband and I (early 30s) are going to NZ in February for about 14-15 nights and plan to drive around the SI. We want to do some day hiking and kayaking, but also just relax and enjoy scenery. I am having trouble figuring out how to fit in everything while still getting to relax--there seem to be so many gorgeous places to see. Can anyone help me craft an itinerary seeing the following places? Or, help me figure out what to cut out? Thanks so much! We can fly into either CHC or Queenstown or fly into one and out of the other.

-Lake Tekapo
-Mt. Cook
-Abel Tasman National Park
-Nelson Lakes National Park
-Fox or Franz Josef Glacier
-Milford Sound
-Wanaka
-Kaikoura (I am considering cutting this)
-Blenheim/Marlborough (this seemed like a good place to do some relaxing because of the wineries but maybe I can cut it for more relaxation somewhere else?)

I am not interested in spending any significant time in either Christchurch or Queenstown. Thank you very much!
