New Zealand in 18 days - Need Help!

Jump to last reply

My family are traveling to New zealand this coming december for 18 days. It's our first time travelling to the country and will love to explore and experience the most of both islands.

We are flying in from auckland on day 1 and leaving from christchurch on day 18 and a quick draft of the destinations to be covered are as below. Do let me know if its feasible, considering that we will be doing our own driving to cover the distance for the 18 days.. Not sure if it's overly ambitious!

day 1 - auckland
day 2 - auckland
day 3 - auckland --> waitamo caves --> rotorua
day 4 - rotorua (possibly matamata)
day 5 - rotorua --> wellington (via lake taupo)
day 6 - wellington
day 7 - wellington --> christchurch (domestic flight)
day 8 - christchurch
day 9 - christchurch --> fox glacier
day 10 - fox glacier --> queenstown
day 11 - queenstown
day 12 - queenstown --> te anau
day 13 - te anau (milford sound day tour )
day 14 - te anau --> dunedin
day 15 - dunedin
day 16 - dunedin --> mt cook
day 17 - mt cook --> christchurch
day 18 - departure frm christchurch

My initial plan is to cover two additional days in bay of islands instad of the extra days in te anau and dunedin but am worried it might be a little too rush for bay of island. comments?
