New Zealand: 7-Day South Island Itinerary

We could have spent weeks and months on the South Island in New Zealand... but not our wallet. So if time (it's money) is limited, here is a short week of immersion in the South.

Milford Sound in the early morning

Once again, we were bound by time and the South Island is worth exploring in more days/weeks. But during our short stay, this route has already allowed us to take full view!

The North has whetted our appetites! So we're off from Auckland, heading to Queenstown for a short week in the South of New Zealand. With 7 days to get a taste of these sublime mountains (the landing in Queenstown is magnificent).

D1: arrival in Queenstown and stroll along Lake Wakatipu

D2: Glenorchy then road to Wanaka


D3: Isthmus Peak, a very untouristy hike with magnificent landscapes


D4: Roys Peak, more touristy but just as amazing


D5: road to Te Anau and stroll along the lake of the same name 


D6:  Milford Sound road then return to Queenstown

D7: Ben Lomond Track then send postcards before plane
