Queenstown to Christchurch in 3 days

Jump to last reply

Hello! This is my first time posting and I have really learned so much from reading other threads!

My husband and I are traveling from Queenstown to Christchurch on Nov 11-14th and would love some suggestions on what to do. Currently, we are doing a fly-cruise-fly to Milford Sound on the morning of the 11th and free the rest of the day (staying the night in Queenstown that evening). At this point in our trip we will have already spent 4 days in Queenstown so looking more so for short drives to hiking trails in the surrounding area. Tentatively:
11: Milford Sound, free afternoon, night in Queenstown
12: leave early AM and head toward Wanaka- no agenda. Hoping to stay the night closer to (if not in) Pukaki area.
13: Lake Pukaki area/ Tekapo (open to input here on similarities/differences between the two) and end the night in Christchurch.
14: Flying out at 9AM.

We will have already spent 2 days in Christchurch in an earlier part of our trip so coming in late on the 13th is fine with us. Mainly a night stay for an earlier flight in the morning.

A little info on us: in our late 20s; doing lots of high-adrenaline activities during other parts of our trip and wanting to end our trip with more nature-filled experiences. We like staying busy and being 'go-go-go!' We enjoy mild to moderate hiking (under 4 hours preferably), taking in aerial views, and photography. Looking forward to some great tips you guys can provide!
