thanks for your feedback. we have come up with a new itinery based on your reccomendations
day 1 pick up motorhome in christchurch 8am drive to Hokitika via arthurs pass with a hike to devils punchbowl hiking track in arthurs pass.
day 2 drive hokitika to franz josef glacier
day 3 drive franz josef glacier to wanaka
day 5 wanaka to queenstown
day 6 day trip from queenstown to milford sound with great tours company
day 7 day exploring queenstown
day 8 queenstown to mount cook
day 9 mount cook to drive to christchurch return motorhome 4pm
now somewhere in there we can have an extra day somewhere or an additional stop on the way. I was thinking maybe at the glaciers but we dont have any wish to climb on the glaciers due to an exsisting knee injury my husband has so would this be wasted time there?
thanks for your advice we truly appreciate it
