I have to decide if I will do 1) Mount Cook OR 2) take the boat (interislander) between Welly and Picton :
1) Take a flight from Wellington to Christchurch, then go down to Mt Cook, Queenstown, Milford, Queenstown, the glaciers, Greymouth and then the train back to Christchurch OR
2) Take the interislander from Wellignton to Picton, then to the glaciers, Queenstown, Milford and then back to Queenstown (flight to Christchuch).
If I choose option 1, I wont see Mount Cook
If I choose option 2 I wont see the Cook Strait between Welly and Picton
I will do the heli-hike on one of the 2 glaciers (one only) in January. I've got a couple of recommendations which are to do Fox instead of Franz Josef if I can do only one of them.
I am just wandering why? Why if Fox superior to Franz? Thanks!
Is it possible to walk that trail *3 hours without a guide? I mean by myself.. early in the morning then take the cruise then back to Te Anau the same day? I dont want to stay at Milfords...Anyway almost everything is booked in January...
Do I have tomake a reservation to walk to the Key summit?
Is it still possible to see these mounts/ Glaciers covered in snow/ice during the month of January (summer)? I've been told that the ice melted a lot during the last few years... I'd like to see snow covered mounts... Is it worth to go to Mount Cook during the summer?
Hi! I will be a few days in the North Island in January. I have eliminated the Paihia area because there will be a lot of vacationers there at this time of the year and that accomodation is very expensive. I could go to Coromandel by car OR take a tour from Auckland... I'd like to see the cove (cathedral). But it seems to be complicated to get there... Perhaps a a tour that would allow me to see it from the sea? Any ideas?
P.S. Is it true that the area has been prohibited because there is a danger of rock collapse - near the cove?
