Worth giving up a day in Wanaka?

Jump to last reply

I'm close to finalizing our SI itinerary but I'm especially struggling with one part of it and could use some feedback. Fly to Queenstown (from Sydney after 3 weeks in Australia) and drive to Wanaka. There for 4 nights, so we would have 3 full days (one of them a fly and cruise to Milford Sound). Drive to Franz Josef for overnight (no glacier climbing, only explore area). Drive to Hokitika, stay 2 nights (Big luminaries fan), drive to Arthur's Pass, stay 2 nights. Drive to Akaroa, stay 2 nights. Fly to NI from chCh. I know this isn't "typical" but I've had to prioritize.

However, we've been thinking about Lake Moreaki (Wilderness Lodge there looks lovely) for 2 nights instead of the night in Franz Josef and one of the nights in Wanaka. When we stay at a really nice accommodation, we like to be there for 2 nights. Any thoughts about this trade off ? It's really tough to find out anything about lake Moreaki except for lodge reviews on TA. thanks everyone.
