Should we change our plans ???

Jump to last reply

Hi, It's about 1 month we'll be in S.Island. One of us thinks that we should go to Arthur Pass instead of Akaroa. The vote is 2 against 2. Please advise us whether it is wise and doable and how to go about it or should we maintain our original itinerary .

26 Nov Land about 12 am in Christchurch (overnight flight from Malaysia and transit
in Singapore & Sydney )

27 Nov Explore Christchurch and buy groceries.
28 Nov Akaroa ( Rental a car, buy groceries at New World, Day tour to Banks
Peninsular )Stay Double Dutch
29 Nov Mt. Cook (lunch at Lake Tekapo & Visit Mt. John Observatory on
the way).
30 Nov Mt. Cook (Glazier Explorers Tour, Kea Poin/Hooker Valley Track )
1 Dec . Wanaka (Mt. Iron walk)
2 Dec Wanaka (scenic flight/ Jet Boating, Bicycle riding)
3 Dec Wanaka (Diamond Lake)
4 Dec Te Anau ( Explore and short walks)
5 Dec Te Anau ( The Chasm and Mirror Lakes Walk, Mildford sound cruise,
Key Summit if good weather & still fit )
6 Dec Queenstown ( Glenorchy Lagoon Boardwalk , Moke lake )
7 Dec Queenstown ( bicycle riding and short walks)

8 Dec Queenstown ( Dart River Safari). Return the car

9. Dec Early flight from Queenstown
Our doubts are should we stay in Arthur Pass on 28 Nov and stay in Christchurch on 29 Nov again , back forward... and spend only 2 nights in Queenstown or is there any better way ? Please comment on our plans... Thank you in advanced.
