New Zealand (South Island) 10 Day Itinerary - Need Advice Please

Jump to last reply

Mid 30’s couple from Southern California are spending our honeymoon in the South Island of New Zealand. We arrive in Queenstown on 24th of December at 12pm and out of Queenstown on the 3rd of January at 2:30pm. That gives us 10 days to explore. We have booked our first two nights in Queenstown and a rental car to get around.

We would like to avoid long drives everyday (husband’s request since he’s driving!) so we can spend more time exploring an area rather than traveling. We are also not into overly touristy environments but are aware it can’t always be avoided. Some of the things/places we are interested in:

- Hiking
- Wine tasting
- Stargazing
- Glow worm caves
- Amazing views (obviously)
- Mt Cook
- Lake Takepo
- Wanaka
- Milford Sound

We are open to other areas not mentioned above as well. Any itinerary and driving route suggestions for the 10 days are much appreciated. The main part we are struggling with in planning is how many days to spend in an area and the driving route. There’s so much to do and see! We are very excited and can’t wait for our adventure.

Thanks!
