I am making some bookings for our time in Fiordland which will be from October 27 to October 30. We will be coming from Queenstown. I was going to book a Doubtful Sound overnight cruise on 27 October with Real Journeys and then on 28, 29 and 30th wanted to spend time in that area. I have looked at Possum Lodge, Manapouri and also thought a night or two at Knobs Flat accommodation or Milford Sound Lodge. We would like to be away from the hustle and bustle so I thought those places would be good? Or should I do the Milford Sound end first?
Also, the kayaking, and comments on that or any more on the overnight cruise would be good eg. my husband doesnt have good sea legs - does Doubtful Sound get rough? - or any suggestions on Milford Cruises - we hope to get there early to beat the crowds.
And weather? I gather October is still pretty cold. Also tourists? Am I best to book everything on line or wait until we are there. I would hate to miss out.
Thanks - will look forward to your comments.
