I'm planning for a 16 days trip to NZ (covering both North and South Islands) with my wife and 3-year old daughter in December 2013. Although most of the places will be of great interest for my kid, I'm a little worried about her safety in some of the spots - Franz Josef, Hooker Valley Track, Tasman Glacier, Skippers Canyon Jet boat to name a few.
Although me and my wife can take turns in looking after her in a few of these places and do the trips alone - which is really not a great idea of a family trip - I was wondering if there are any work around for this.
Anyone who has travelled with toddlers have any suggestions? Specially for Mount Cook treks, and Franz Josef. Any help is much appreciated. Thanks,
