New Zealand trip -itinerary help please

Jump to last reply

We plan to visit New Zealand this March. We are an older couple who have been fortunate to visit many parts of the world. This is our first visit to New Zealand - we are walkers not trackers, want to see cities and countryside, a few museums, plan to drive and may take a train from Wellington to Christchurch. For planning, I have been using the wonderful information found on this forum as well as several tour books. So many choices, it is difficult to decide where to visit - hopefully I can get some answers from this forum. 1. Heading south from Dunedin to Te Anau we would like to take the Southern Scenic Route - how far down the coast should we go and how many days should we allow? 2. If we take the Southern Scenic Route should we also stop at Otago Peninsula? 3. Take a cruises on both Milford and Doubtful sound? 4. Is there a walk that allows us to see the face of Fox or Franz Josph glacier? 5. After glacier visit should we overnight at Greymouth or Arthur's Pass Village - the drive back to Christchurch maybe too far. I appreciate your help. Thanks
