Help! heading to South Island NZ next friday!!

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are traveling to NZ next week and are still finalizing our plans...!

I am open to any suggestions. We enjoy beautiful scenery, hiking, wine. We are trying to see as much as possible but also being able to stay in each place for at least a couple of days so we don't feel like we're running the whole time.

Itinerary as it stands now:
2/19 arrive Queenstown (gondola, chairlift, luge, walk around town)
2/20 Queenstown (bungee swing, jet boat?)
2/21 Queenstown (hike), eventually drive to Te Anau
2/22 Te Anau - day on Milford Sound
2/23 Te Anau - hike a portion of the routeburn track to Key Summit
2/24 Te Anau/Queenstown flex day
2/25 fly to Blenheim
2/26 Blenheim
2/27 Blenheim (? day trip to kaikoura to swim with dolphins?)
2/28 Queen Charlotte Track
2/29 Queen Charlotte Track
3/1 Queen Charlotte Track
3/2 Abel Tasman
3/3 Abel Tasman or Golden Bay
3/4 fly to Auckland and on to US

Any thoughts on ways to improve or change?

Thanks in advance!!

Jen
