when they come to New Zealand. You haven’t really seen New Zealand until you’ve explored it.”
We took our friend’s advice and spent almost three weeks touring around this beautiful island. After having now travelled extensively around both islands, not only do I 100% agree with her but I have to argue that the South may even be more stunning than the North. With ice capped mountain ranges, pristine glacier lakes, jaw-dropping fjords and an incredible array of wildlife living just off its jagged coastline, it really is one of the best travel spots in the world.
In this post, part of our ongoing itinerary series, we give you TWO fantastic sample itineraries for 2 Weeks in New Zealand South Island, both of which guarantee you a fabulous time.
These itineraries are designed to be done while self-driving through the country as this is the absolute best way to see and experience the magnificence of this tiny island nation.
Of course, these sample itineraries are just a guide and you depending on what type of traveller you are, you can modify these to suit your own style.
