We are arriving by ferry at Picton and have 10 days of travel by car in the south island.
Our friends would like to visit - the west coast and spend a couple of days at Fox Glacier 3 days in Queenstown and 3 days in Christchurch.
We arrive in Picton around midday and would commence our travels. We planned to stay the first night in Nelson and then continue south.
I need recommendations on where we should stop the following night or if it is possible to drive from Nelson to Fox Glacier in one day? Of should we plan to stop somewhere north of that area?
I have been looking at Tripadvisor for accomodation in that area and its quite expensive for pretty ordinary motels/hotels. Any suggestions pls?
Lots of questions but some readers have been very helpful in the past.
