We are planning a road trip around New Zealand this December. Due to a very limited time period (18 days) it is a real whistle stop tour. At the minute we are planning to travel down the West Coast towards Franz Josef and will arrive on New Years Eve, is this a wise decision? I havent really looked into accommodation etc but we have a campervan so we would need a Holiday Park.
I just wondered if anybody had any experiences of this area around that time of year or had any recommendations?
