I am only beginning the educational stage of what New Zealand has to offer. Somewhere, I have read that the South Island has more to offer in the way of WOW scenery but would like suggestions.
Also, today I looked over South Island N Z Frenzy by Scott Cook. Does anyone have suggestions as to what guide I might read to look regarding:
1. What a couple in their early 60s might enjoy?
2. Drives with drop your jaw gorgeous views?
3. Shorter walks (under 4 km round trip) with the wow factor?
4. Special scenic places to spend the night in a small camper van.
To give you a heads up, we have always used and appreciated Rick Steves for Europe to let you understand a typical author we appreciate greatly. Sincerely thanks in advance for your words of wisdom and keep traveling.
