14 day South NZ Trip

Road Trips Forum - TripAdvisor - www.tripadvisor.com
Dear all,

I will be going to South NZ for a holiday in mid June with my friend, her mom and her friends. I've done up an itinerary and would like to request the experts here for help on seeing whether the itinerary is doable.. We will be doing a self drive tour, starting from Christchurch, and ending back in Christchurch..

Day 1 - Land in CHC explore stay a night

Day 2 - Tranzalpine train to Greymouth, pick up car and drive to fox glacier. Will be staying two nights in fox glacier.

Day 3 - Drive to Franz Josef glacier in the morning, take 2 hour walk. Return to fox glacier for short rest before going to Lake Matheson in late afternoon.

Day 4 - Fox glacier walk in the morning. start drive to Queenstown in late morning/early afternoon. Stop by Wanaka for lunch.

Day 5 - Explore Queenstown, maybe go Walter Peak

Day 6 - Further explore Queenstown / Arrowtown Chinese Settlement if time allows. Start drive to Te Anau in the afternoon. Glowworm caves at night.

Day 7 - Milford sound

Day 8 - Doubtful sound

Day 9 - Set off for Twizel in the morning. Stop by Wrinkly Rams. Stock up on food in Twizel and stay one night

Day 10 & 11 - Spend in Mount Cook. go for walks.

Day 12 - Set off for CHC in the morning, stopping by Lake Tekapo for photos. Geraldine for lunch, Fairlie for Gem Alpaca Stud. roughly reach CHC at 8pm at night?

Day 13 - Last min shopping in CHC

Day 14 - Fly back to Singapore

Because it will be winter in June, we will try to cease driving by 5pm. except day 12 when we are going back to CHC. will it be safe to drive after 5pm ? I've read somewhere that its not that safe for first-timers driving in winter to drive after dark...

Thanks and really appreciate your help on this peeps. <3
