Recommended length of time for mother to visit me in NZ?

Jump to last reply

I haven't yet put too much thought into it and at least I've already been to NZ myself but I think my 60yr+ mother will be visiting me next time I am in NZ.

She wouldn't be capable of any of the "hikes" (walking something like hooker valley is probably max is my thinking) and is not really an adventure/daredevil type of thing

On my own I'm good to move around quickly and see a lot pretty fast, but not so with her. What would you guys recommend as a good length of time for a relaxing but valuable tour of NZ? I guess length would also indicate whether it's north+south or just one, and that's flexible too.

I'd almost certainly have my own car which we could use to get around, but flying/organized tours/daytrips is a possibility as well.
