    • Arthurs Pass

      Christchurch Dec 31, 2016 at 4:59 AM

      Firstly thanks for all the helpful info. Major change of plans decided to fly from Auckland to Christchurch rather than take the ferry

      Is it possible in a day to drive from Christchurch via Arthurs Pass to Greymouth - a friend who is married to a Kiwi laughed at the idea yet Google maps makes it 151 miles which would make it doable even on mountain roads given that we started early. Likewise I've been warned that the roads around Fox & Franz Joseph Glaciers are liable to close if there is heavy rain. In blunt terms is this scaremongering - equally a hol is for relaxing so we don't want stress

      All info much appreciated and I'm sorry for bothering VTs but I know the advice given is always top notch

      Many thanks

    • Backpackers that takes you to see dolphins?

      by Racer_girl Online Now Aug 24, 2014 at 10:59 PM

      This is a long shot, but when i visited Akaroa in 2006/2007, I remember there was a small backpackers where the guy would take a small groups of people out on his little dingy to see the Hectors dolphins. It was amazing, he was a lovely guy, but i cannot remember his name, or the backpackers associated with it! Does anyone know what I'm talking about?

      For people not staying at the backpackers, i remember he charged a small fee, $20 or $25. But it was soo worth it, and so personalized! If anyone knows who i'm talking about ,pls advise!
