We will have 15 days in the SI in February. I'm always most struck by snow capped mountains and lakes so am thinking of spending a few days in Wanaka to do some hiking after seeing Milford Sound. But, this means less time in the North-Abel Tasman and Nelson Lakes. Does anyone have thoughts about whether that makes sense? How unique is Abel Tasman? Beaches don't really interest me, but it does look quite lovely. Or would Nelson Lakes be a good compromise? It seems like people have mixed views on Wanaka-I am really just looking for somewhere gorgeous to go hiking, I don't care much about the town itself. Any thoughts would be appreciated. Thanks!
Abel Tasman/Golden Bay or more time in Wanaka?
