Coming over for a 3 week trip around the North Island over Christmas & New Year and we're wondering if we should pre-book B&B's at this time of year? We don't want to be tied down to a rigid route in case we want to spend extra time in certain places. We are travelling clockwise from Auckland to Wellington, then up the West Coast to Bay Of Islands for New Year.
Also I have Coeliac Disease so I'm concerned about the availability of gluten-free food while travelling? Hence the reason I'm more keen to pre-book accommodation, but my husband isn't.
Any information would be appreciated! Especially from fellow Coeliacs! Thanks.
