We are a family of 4 with flights booked in to Auckland arriving 14 December and flying out again on 2 Jan. This means that we will be there for both Xmas and New Year. I am just starting to plan our itinerary. We want to do North and South Island and intend having a camper van for some of the time - probably not all, as I think we would find it impossible to live on top of each other for 3 weeks!
Do you have any suggestions for what would be good to do for Xmas and New Year? I wondered whether being in a hotel would be a good idea - and if so, what recommendations do you have?
