3 weeks in New Zealand for Honeymoon

Jump to last reply

Hi everyone! My husband and I are spending 3 weeks in New Zealand for our honeymoon during the month of December. I've come across so many itineraries in my research and have put together my own based on everything I have seen. I was hoping to get other people's point of views who know the area or traveled extensively to the area. We plan on renting a car so I've looked up all the drive times too to make sure we don't spend the entire trip in the car.

Thanks so much for your feedback!!
