My partner and I have just over 6 weeks in New Zealand stating on the 10th of July. We have rented a self contained campervan and will need to hook up in a campsite every third night or so to recharge the batteries, whilst the rest of the time we can be free camping. We fly in to Christchurch and we plan to do a loop of the South Island before crossing on the ferry and we will fly out of Aukland (where we will leave the camper van). We think 4 weeks in the South Island and 2 weeks in the North Island as a rough guide by what we have heard so far.
We have a small budget, but would love to get a couple of days skiing in there somewhere and a glacier walk. I would love to do a sky dive as well.
We are hoping to get some pointers or advice on where is a must see, places to be and things to do.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated,
