My partner and myself are arriving in New Zealand on 29th Oct 2008 where we will be for 2 weeks and 3 days. I know it isn't the greatest amount of time to appreciate the full beauty of New Zealnad but we intend to spend most of the time in the South.
I would like help with what to do in the South island please. I intend to propose to my girlfriend and was looking for suggestions on what would be the best way to do it. I want to do a helitour with a landing and picnic and propose to her then. However, i am unsure of what tour to chose. I have heard Milford Sound is incredible but i don't know if that would be best seen from a cruise or helicopter. There are so many other options and i am so confused. I want to see Mount cook and the glaziers as well. Unsure if i should hike the glaziers or fly Mt cook and the galziers.
Basically i would like help with what would be the best way to see Milford Sound, Mount cook and the glaziers (e.g from air, hike or boat). Also the best way to incorporate my proposal into this! (e.g arrange a snow landing at milford sound helitour or at mount cook/glaziers whilst taking boat trip at mount cook).
Thanks alot for your help!
