New Zealand tips

by /bio/dealan »

I'm planning to go to New Zealand in September for at least 3 weeks. I am just beginning my planning.

I know that I want to go to hot springs and the fjords. Beyond that I'm totally open to suggestion.

We can do short hikes and as a photographer I'd like to get some good images.

We do like to relax when we travel so suggestions for comfortable places to stay would be great.

Also we are flying from Hawaii and I'm wondering if there is an island where we can stay mid-trip, or are non-stops the way to go? Which airlines are the best?

We'd like to rent our own car and drive ....is this advisable?

Most perfect time would be mid season. New Zealand is blooming at that time of the year. You can choose to stay in one of the lodges if you want to as in my opinion, they give the best homestay experience in New Zealand. Also, go through a coupon website like Kiindly or Ebates for good discounts on your air fares and lodging rates. Believe me, it will be a one of a kind experience to explore New Zealand on your own.
