new zealand south island

Jump to last reply

We are trying to plan a trip from the U.S. to the south island of NZ. Our travel dates are 12/19/16 thru about 1/3/16. We thought it would be fun to stop and relax in Fiji for a few days to recover from the long flight, and then fly to Queenstown about 12/23 or 12/24 and rent a car to tour the island. My husband wants to do the bungi jump there. The places we'd like to see are Milford sound, maybe a kayak trip there, Franz Josef, possibly Mt.Cook, possibly Nelson to go to the Abel Tasman Nat'l park, and Kaikoura. I've read that we should not miss a tour with Encounter Kaikoura to swim with the dolphins. And, finally ending up in Christchurch to fly home. I'm realizing we may not have time to do all of this, and also, so many places are completely booked already. Any suggestions on routes to drive or places to stay? And, I guess , what to leave out if all of this is not possible in the amount of time we have.
I have found Trelawn Place b and b in Queenstown, has availability 12/24 thru 12/26 . and there is 1 room available at Knobs Flat near Milford Sound on 12/26.
