New Zealand South Island Itinerary

Jump to last reply

Good morning. We are in the final stages of planning a 2 week South Island honeymoon.
We began with trying to squeeze in both islands but after reading so many reviews we figured it best to focus on 1 island. Our itinerary we came up with is below and would love to hear from everyone. Our main questions are:

1. Visit Mt Cook or West Coast & Glaciers? (Considering longer driving times)
2. Is Mt Cook worth staying for 2 nights?
3. If you had an extra day to add would it be in Te Anau or Wanaka?
4. Skip AKL all together and miss Hobbiton, fly directly to SI?

Itinerary: *We have 1 extra day we can add on or 3 days if we skip AKL
December 28 - Arrive in AKL
Stay 2 nights
Visit Hobbiton and Caves on 2nd day

Dec 30 - Fly to Queenstown
Stay 3 nights

Jan 2 - Te Anau
Stay 2 nights

Jan 4 - Wanaka
Stay 2 nights

Jan 6 - Mt Cook
Stay 2 nights

Jan 8 - Christchurch
Stay 1 night

Jan 9 - Fly home

Please advise. Thank you so very much for your help!
