    • Should I bring all my backpacking gear to New Zealand or just do day hikes?

      Christchurch Jan 11, 2016 at 11:13 AM

      Hello. My wife and I are traveling to New Zealand for our honeymoon. We are going to land in Christchurch and do a giant loop around the South Island. We are renting a car. We are really adventurous and love backpacking, hiking, and trail running. I am trying to decide if we should bring our backpacking gear (tent, sleeping bags, etc). We usually only do primitive camping (no picnic tables, showers, car access, etc). Are there a lot of places to camp primitively in New Zealand or is it mostly in campsites? Thank you!
