NZ 10 day honeymoon, driving NI and SI

Jump to last reply

Good afternoon,
My future wife and I will be embarking on the trip of our dreams in December. I’ve book the hotels and flights, but I need help filling in the middle. Any and all suggestions will be greatly appreciated.
We will be arriving on 12/09 in Auckland. Out of madness or insanity we will be then driving every day, stopping at a new hotel in a new city. Out Itinerary is as follows;

12/9 into 12/10 –Auckland
12/10 into 12/11- Rotorua We plan on seeing the hobbit town and glow worms
12/11 into 12/12 – Wellington
12/12 9AM ferry to Picton
12/12 into 12/13 Picton
12/13 into 12/14 Nelson
12/14 into 12/15 Panakaiki Resort
12/15 into 12/16 Fox Glacier….We want to do a helicopter ride to the top, which I plan on looking up and booking in the next few days
12/16 into 12/18 (2 nights) Queenstown
12/16 into 12/18 (2 nights) Queenstown
12/18 into 12/19 Twizel From here we drive to Chistchurch, to catch out 2:30PM flight to Fiji, which only flies once a week (hopefully we miss and get stuck!)

After typing this out I can see how busy we will be! Especially reading reviews for people staying for months at a time.

Thank you again!
Stephen and Andrea
