I will be traveling to New Zealand with my adult son Feb. 2015 and need some guidance with my itinerary. We have 21 days to see this incredible part of the world.

1.Arrive Auckland early AM and fly to Lake Taupo-car rental
2-3 Lake Taupo and Tongariro Nat'l Park
4. Fly Lake Taupo or Rotorua to Nelson-car rental
4, 5, 6, 7, 8 Nelson, Kaiteriteri, Abel Tasman National Park, maybe Takaka. Plan to say one place and prefer beach hotel. any recommendations?

9 Fly Nelson to Greymouth or Nelson to CC for oneway Transzalpine train trip--?? Is this worth the effort and which direct is best?
10 ,11, return to CC and on to Rangiora for farm stay-car rental
12, 13, 14 Fly CC to Queenstown and on to Te Anau. Car rental. We plan to stay in Te Anau-recommendations? Milford sound cruise? flight see? Steam ship cruise TSS Earnslaw on Lake Wakatipu
15, 16, Queenstown-get ready/planning
17, 18 Routeburn Track tramping-Scheduled

I have reviewed many of the itineraries about New Zealand travel and each is a little different. I realize time is short and I hope to fine tune our plans soon.Any suggestions would be welcome.
