I am flying into Quuenstown and out of Christchurch 8 days later, at the end of March. We have a motorhome booked with toilet and shower. I am very keen to see Milford Sound initially, but then am struggling to decide which route to go from there. Back to queenstown and up the west coast, up the middle via Lake Tekapo or down to the Caitlins and back up the east coast?
Which route will give us maximum variety and wow factor? Or is there a combination that we could do instead? We are more than happy to stay in remote locations overnight and don't mind driving 3 or so hours a day if required.
Also, we will probably do an helicopter journey at some point to get a different perspective of the landscape...perhaps over a glacier.
All advice is much appreciated.
I don't think we will going back for a while as my wife is pregnant, and want to get this right.
