I am just after some advice on my itinerary do you think it is to rushed anywhere am I missing anything super important and do you think the number of days in each place is okay?
We arrive in Christchurch mid Oct and fly out 14 days later
Day 1 arrive Christchurch stay 1 night
Day 2 Pick up motorhome head to hammer springs stay overnight
Day 3 Kaikoura possibly swim with seals
Day 4 Blenheim (wine tout)
Day 5 greymouth
Day 6 greymouth (glow worm tubbing experience)
Sounds good to me your itinerary, (no rushed) you drive more than one hour per day, your longest drive is between Blenheim to Greymouth sounds reasonable, NZ has scenic drive overall
i think you could have a read back through recent posts that have given info for similar question and similar itinerary time
at least with a motorhome you are not committed and you can be flexible - i never commit when i travel anyway with a rental car and do my accommodation as i go along in whichever country im in as long as i have as much info as possible.
the AA have good maps and good accommodation guidebooks ie for caravan parks/motor camps around the country
and i really like the DK eyewitness guidebooks for the amount of visual input in it - lots of photos, maps, recommended driving and walking routes, historical information...so its an excellent souvenir too of famous places.
