Trouble Deciding on SI New Zealand Itinerary *Please Help*

Jump to last reply

Hi All,

In April my wife and I are headed for the SI of New Zealand for 2 weeks and I could really use some help deciding on an itinerary. We are flying into Wellington (taking the ferry to Picton) and flying out of Christchurch. I was pretty set on our original itinerary, however we got grief from a few Kiwi's that said we'd be disappointed if we did not to make our way up to see Abel Tasmen, Wharariki beach, and Farewell Spit areas. I know both itineraries will have a few long driving days, but I am afraid that the revised itinerary will be too much (Esp. Collinswood to Hokitika). I wish we had more time!

Revised Itinerary..............Original Itinerary
4/1 Nelson..........................Picton
4/2 Collinswood................Kaikoura
4/3 Hokitika........................Kaikoura
4/4 Wanaka........................Hokitika
4/5 Wanaka........................Wanaka
4/6 Milford Sound..............Wanaka
4/7 Milford Sound..............Milford Sound
4/8 Queenstown................Milford Sound
4/9 Queenstown................Queenstown
4/10 Queenstown................Queenstown
4/11 Mt. Cook........................Queenstown
4/12 Akaroa...........................Mt. Cook
4/13 Kaikoura.......................Akaora
4/14 Kaikoura.......................Akaora
4/15 - Fly out of Christchurch in Afternoon.

I would really appreciate any feedback on either itinerary!! Either way I know it will be an amazing trip! Cheers!
