Help me plan a Rugby trip to NZ in 2017

Jump to last reply

Over on the Rugby World Cup thread, someone suggested that the only chance that the home nations wold have of beating the All Blacks was by clubbing together into one team, which is of course exactly which is happening in 2017 with the Lions tour of NZ. Which set me thinking......

This is the itinerary:

I don't think that we'd want to watch all the matches, but possibly the last 2 tests -1st July in Wellington, and 8th July in Auckland, plus possibly one of the regional matches.

What would it be feasible to see/do in winter, either on the NI alone, or on both NI & SI? We missed Rotorua on our last trip, saw little of the Coromandel and nothing of the Bay of Islands. I'm thinking about a couple of weeks at least, combining it with a stop-over somewhere warmer!

Any and all ideas gratefully received!
