Hello! Would love anyone's feedback on our current itinerary. We don't want to drive for too long each day, and we don't want to rush! Hence the 2-3+ nights in one place so we can use that as a base for day trips, etc. Thanks!
Day 4-6: Stop at Lake Pukaki on the way to Mt Cook for 2 nights. do some walks/hikes, heli hiking?, Hooker Valley?
Day 6-9: Make our way passed Wanaka to Waiorau Homestead for 3 nights. during this time, maybe visit wineries near Tarras, detour Cromwell, do some hikes like Rob Roy Trail?, Haast Pass, Wanaka Lake... ?
Day 9-13: Onwards to Queenstown for 4 nights, stop by Arrowtown. during this time, maybe do an overnight at Milford or Doubtful Sound, visit Lake Wakatipu, explore Queenstown... Then fly from Queenstown back to Auckland for departing flight home.
