I have worked and reworked an itinerary but am thinking we need another day or 2 in Queenstown as the 2 I have planned will be skiing for the kids. Any suggested variations please:
Day 1 arrive very late in Chch.
Day 2 explore Chch and Ko Tane show
Day 3 drive to Akaroa, explore and stay
Day 4 do Timaru, Oamanu, onto Dunedin and stay
Day 5 see Otaga Peninsula, Lanarch Castle, Dunedin, drive onto Te Anau, stay at Te Anau
Day 6 Milford Sound tour from Te Anau, drive to Queenstown
Day 7, 8 ski. Should there be a Day 9 or 9 and 10?
Next: lake tekapo, stay
Next: back to ChCh for another Day
I am open to more than 14 days as the kids can come out of school for some of the last week of term. I am budgeting 8k for accommodation, meals and activities. Accommodation is ranging from $90-$150 per night on average.We will be hiring a car but taking a tour bus from Te Anau to Milford and back again. Open to any suggested changes to ensure we have enough time for those towns that require it. Will be travelling with my husband and two teenage boys aged 13 and 15 from about 20/9/13 to 4/10/13. Thank you
