Follow this link for a animated map with some pictures. We created this map to give our kids a more visual idea of what we will be doing…
This is the route we planned: It might sound a bit strange, but 5 weeks is not a lot to visit both islands of new Zealand. We do need to make decisions and therefore we decided to skip everything above Auckland. Believe me this was not an easy offer, because Bay of islands up north was on our list since the very first minute.
Auckland – Coromandel
Matamata – Rotorua
Picton – Nelson
Abel Tasman NP
Mount Cook – Franz Jozef Glacier
Te Anau-Milford Sound
