My husband and I will be completing our loop around the south island and have 2.5 days to get from Picton to our flight out of Christchurch airport.
Any recommendations on where to stay/go?
We are intrigued by Akaroa but it is a long way out of the way. There also is a cruise ship due to be there at the same time and we're not sure what that does to the town.
We would have had our fill of tracking and kayaking. We are wine lovers so would stop at wineries along the way but I'm not sure if we should overnight in one of the wine regions.
We're looking for quiet, beautiful, non-touristy, near the water areas to end our trip.
