I have been planning our trip to NZ in March and would like to thank everyone on the forum for their posts as I have got a lot of info from it.
We are driving to Milford Sound from Queenstown. Original plan was to drive to Milford and spend the night there before getting an early morning cruise, then drive back to Te Anau for the next night. We liked the idea of being in our camper van after all the tourists have gone home. However, I have read that the sand flies mean you can't sit outside in the evening and also I believe the road to Milford Sound is quite challenging in a camper. Would we be better to stay in Te Anau for 2 nights and brave the crowds on a Saturday by doing an organised tour from Te Anau. Would welcome comments.
