Road Trip Around New Zealand's South Island


Christchurch, Canterbury, New Zealand
From Oct 21, 2019 to Nov 9, 2019


Trip Details

I'm heading to the South Island of New Zealand for three weeks and plan to hire a vehicle while there. I haven't decided which type of vehicle yet (small car or a camper van) because before I booked anything, I wanted to post on here to see if anyone would be up to join me! I plan to do a loop starting and ending in Christchurch. Below is my general route:

  • I'll first head northeast to Punakaiki from Christchurch (through Castle Hill and Arthur's Pass).
  • Then make my way south to Wanaka (being sure to hit Fox Glacier, Franz Josef, Lake Matheson, Gillespie's Beach, etc.).
  • After spending a few days in Wanaka, I'll head to Queenstown to explore for some days
  • Then would be Te Anau, Milford Sound, etc.
  • Then I'll check out Mt. Cook, Hooker Valley, Lake Tekapo before heading back to Christchurch.

My route can be changed but I'd like to hit most of the places I mentioned above. I've done both solo trips and group trips in the past and I enjoy them both! I'm more than happy to also pick folks up along the way if they need to get from one spot to another. Just thought this would be a cool opportunity to open this up to the group and potentially meet new people!
