My family will be traveling to the south island at the end of November for 2-3 weeks. We are trying to come up with an itinerary that allows us to see all of the highlights (or as many as we can). We are used to moving around a lot so that is okay, we just dont want it to be an insane amount.
The one catch is that my husband, because of work commitments, can only come for 11 days, so we are trying to figure out not only what the best itinerary is, but what to do first while he is…
I'm planning a tour - mostly North Island - over Christmas New Year, and looking for advice on motor homes. Definitely needs bathroom facilities so we can head off to less popular areas. Which companies are the best, without being too expensive? Any experiences and guidance gratefully accepted.
I've been living in NZ for nearly a year and a half, and have seen quite a lot of it. I've got a rough itinerary in mind for the 3 week trip that my mother is making, but I was looking for some unfound gems I may be missing?
Can you suggest some of the real gems that you've found in NZ? Anywhere special that you like? I know its a very broad question, and it's meant to be as broad as possible so I can get a range of answers...
Hi everyone! I'm from Spain, travelling to New Zealand on november, after that I will fly to Indonesia for some weeks.
I have been checking the transport and tours throught the island (crazy expensive), and the options seems that the clever option it is to rent a car and move in hostels to socialize, etc....
I haven.t planned the route yet, but definetily I am interested in the national parks on the south, and I have time and flexibility to do long hikes.
I am just planning ahead to know if…
02/09/16 8:00am pick up motorhome Christchurch
10/09/16 4:00pm drop off motorhome Christchurch
I am after any advice for the best roadtrip through the South Island. We have a motorhome so will be trying to freedom camp, we want to be away from everything (exception is Queenstown) what's a good route for us to take? My husband has never seen the snow is there anywhere this time of year that would still have snowfall?? We want to see more of the lakes and mountains rather than the coast lines.
I am finishing up my plan for New Zealand in April 2017.
I plan on renting a car in Auckland dropping in Wellington. Pickup a car in Picton and drop in Greymouth.
I am trying to decide if I should do this trip North-South (as below) or reverse it and do South-North.
I know there is school holidays the second half of April and of course the weather.
Any advise? I am also interested in a sanity check on my plan as well. Open to all comments.
Fly to Auckland April 1 9:45 - 14:55
Auckland Day 2
Hi, I am interested in traveling through New Zealand by bicycle, and thought there may be here someone who did such a thing lately. If so, I will be glad to ask few questions.
Thanks in advance.
I have the option of choosing between two road-tips to Picton. I would like to know which trip is the more picturesque and recommended of the two? We will be traveling with an older lady who can walk quite well on flat surfaces but cannot partake in hiking or anything too strenuous. We are mostly interested in the natural beauty that we will be able to see along the drive and the viewpoints and short walks we can experience along the way.
Here are the 2 options:
I will be traveling in New Zealand in August. I am starting from Auckland on the 8th of August and leaving from Auckland on the 24th. During these 2 weeks I would like to see the best of New Zealand !
I already have a beginning of route but it's quite flexible yet.
But the most important is : I'm looking for travelmates !

I´m a 41 year old female ICU nurse, working freelance in Norway, living in Denmark. Booked a one-way ticket to Auckland on the 6th of september. This year ;) Don´t quite know yet in details where I wanna go or what I intend to see, in specific. But a lot of nature, new people, culture good food.
After 2-3 weeks in NZ, both north and south island, I´m planning to book a ticket for Sydney....and ...see a bit of Australia as well.
Need ideas-inspiration and hopefully some companionship…
