New Zealand Itinerary - April / May 2011

Jump to last reply

Hi All,

I think we've got our trip to NZ settled for the end of April / early May.

Any comments on the following? Anything not to miss on the way? Anything we should rethink while we can still cancel for refund?

- Fly in and out of Auckland
- Auckland (2 nights, 1 day, 1 day waiheke island)
- Dinner reservations at Clooney's, any comments?
- Drive south to Waitomo Caves - black water rafting worth it?
- Drive to Tongariro - do the alpine crossing (any tips?)
- Drive to Hawke's Bay & do some wine touring
- Dinner reservations at Terroir Restaurant at Craggy Range, any comments?
- Fly from Napier to Queenstown, drive to Milford Sound
- Milford Sound Kayak tour
- Drive to Te Anau - stay at fiordland lodge, any comments?
- Any recommended 1 day tramps in the area? (Earland Falls? or Key Summit?)
- Drive to Otago & do some wine tasting
- Drive to Wanaka, any comments on Cardrona Adventure Park?
- Any recommended restaurants in Wanaka?
- Rob Roy glacier tramp
- Queenstown, 1 day (is the canyon swing worth it / terrifying?)
- Fly to Auckland and home

anything we're missing?

what about clothes? we're planning on light thermal clothes for our hikes & kayak trip, will that suffice (ie: thermal long underwear, fleece top, light waterproof jacket / pants, light fleece toque / gloves)?

do we need chains for the car for our time in fiordland?

loads of questions i know... can't wait for our trip!

thanks in advance - j.
