I'll have 3-4 days to get away from Christchurch in mid-October and want to do some hiking and mountain photography. Trying to decide between Mt Cook NP or Arthur's Pass NP. I like Arthur's Pass because it's pretty close to CHC, but I also heard it can be quite rainy up there especially at that time of year. Would I do better at Mt Cook for weather, or much the same?
Which choice would give more opportunities for great mountain vistas driving to and hiking around, or both great?
Thanks for your feedback, first visit to NZ.
