NZ South Island 2013

Jump to last reply

We have a group of 4 couples that will be traveling to NZ in February 2013. we are all in our 60's but we are all very active. We arrive in Christchurch on Monday February 11 about 10 AM and depart Christchurch on Saturday February 23 at 4 PM (12 days). Our draft itinerary takes us on a counterclockwise loop around part of the south island. Specifically, our trip breaks out as follows:
• Day 1- Greymouth
• Day 2 & 3- western glaciers
• Day 4- Wanaka
• Day 5 & 6- TeAnau
• Day 7 & 8- Queenstown/Glenorchy
• Day 9 & 10- Mt. Cook
• Last day- Christchurch


We have developed this draft itinerary but we are certainly willing to make adjustments. At this time we have no lodging accommodations and would like to begin making reservations soon. Any suggestions concerning lodging would be appreciated. We are open to any type…..B&B, small motels, hostels, etc. We generally do not splurge on lodging but instead blow the budget on dining.

We would appreciate any and all suggestions you care to offer on lodging, places to see and any other traveling tips. We’ve investigated specific points we want to see but any locations that you would recommend would certainly be appreciated. The best tips really are from people who have traveled to the destination. Thanks for any and all suggestions.
