My husband and I are going to NZ for our honeymoon this March. We decided on the South Island because we both love landscapes and glaciers and some adventure sports. Does my itinerary look doable, too tiring? Also,Just as I finalized the itinerary, my husband has requested if we could go surfing (and some motocross) somewhere, sometime. Is there any place in this itinerary where we could do that? Or do I have to redo the itinerary? Thank you!
Some background: South Island only, 12 days max, return Christchurch mid 30s couple, will do the rental car/motel combo, adventurous and fairly fit
Day 1: Arrive Christchurch
Day 2: Christchurch to Greymouth via train, spend night in Greymouth
Day 3: Pick up car in Greymouth, head to Fox Glacier
Day 4: Fox Glacier to Wanaka
Day 5: Wanaka to Queenstown
Day 6: Queenstown
Day 7: Queenstown-Milford Sound- Queenstown (will do the flight-cruise combo to save time)
Day 8: Queenstown to Mt. Cook
Day 9: Mt. Cook to Lake Tekapo to Christchurch
Day 10: Explore Christchurch
Day 11: Leave Christchurch
Thank you everyone!
