21 day New Zealand Itinerary with Milford Track

Jump to last reply

Hello,

I would love any insight into how to plan our 21 day road trip around the South Island of NZ. We are interested in sightseeing and hiking. We fly in and out of Christchurch. It all looks so amazing it is hard to figure out what to skip and how to arrange all the highlights without too much driving. I appreciate any help! Please let me know if we are missing anything exciting along the way. Our tentative itinerary:

Day 1-2 Spend in Christchurch exploring

Day 3 Maruia Springs - camp nearby

Day 4 Westport - see cape foulwind seal colony

Day 5-6 Karamea - do portion of Heaphy Track and stay one night, second night in Karamea

Day 7 Punakaiki/Greymouth - see pancake rocks stay in Greymouth for night

Day 8 Hokitaka - hike and see hokitaka gorge

Day 9 - Glaciers/Haast - stop to see glaciers and sleep in Haast

Day 10-11 Queenstown - explore and hike nearby

Day 12 Te Anau - drive day and rest before Milford Track

Day 13-15 Milford Track

Day 16 Te Anau - rest and explore town

Day 17 Invercargill - explore the city and sandy point

Day 18 Drive through Papatowai to see the lost gypsy and end in Dunedin

Day 19 Dunedin - explore

Day 20-21 Lake Tekapo - explore

Thanks!
