5-day motorhome trip to South Island of New Zealand. WHERE to go?

Jump to last reply

My family and I will be going on a motorhome trip on 23 - 29 Oct 2011, which is right after the World Cup ended, thank god. This will be our first overseas trip in 20 years (together in one family), yes it's been that long. With just effectively 5 days to spare, we would appreciate if you can suggest us best route from Christchurch airport and back again.

Any recommendations on the best, scenic in South Island for us to go to? We could settle with 1 or 2 camping location in a national park somewhere. There are plenty of them and I'm not so sure which will be good for us to settle in, and do some moderate activities like fishing, cycling and scenic spots for painting.

We've already booked our motorhome at Wendekreisen and our first night stay in a motel btw.

23 Oct: Stay in Airport Birches Motel (we arrive in midnight)
24-28 Trip to...??

Would appreciate any feedback and comments. Thank you very very much :D
