We are planning a 3 week visit from Jan 25 until Feb 18 flying into Auckland and out of Queenstown (and we have a car rental). I have two questions please:
(1) Prebooking: I went ahead and booked accomodations for my first 2 nights, last night, and a couple nights in Te Anau - do you think I need to worry about finding accomodations during that time of the year for the rest of the trip or can we book as we go? Also, if we want to cruise Milford Sound can we wait until we get there?
(2) General itinerary - any feedback: parenthesis shows how many nights in each city: Auckland (1), Coromandel Peninsula (1), Bay of Plenty (2), Rotorua (1), Napier (2), Wellington (1), Nelson (3), Kaikoura (2), Christchurch (2), Dunedin (2), Te Anau (3), Queenstown (3).
