      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

      best time to take photo Church of the Good Shepherd

      by raypang Online Now Mar 16, 2014 at 7:20 PM

      The best side of the church will face the sunlight in the late afternoon or early in the morning? I want to plan to pass by and stay for an hour in the lake side for some photo shots when driving from Christchurch to Wanaka.

      When is the best time of the year for the peak bloom on the Lupins? I'm working on planning a trip to NZ in 2011.

      Thank you

      Need info on Lake Tekapo bicycle and kayak hire

      by JohanIsWeg Online Now Nov 23, 2008 at 2:03 AM

      Hi,

      Struggling to find information on freedom bicycle and kayak hire at Lake Tekapo. Can anyone assist with contact details, prices or other information?

      Have heard of Tussock & Tarnz Adventures, but inquiries via their email bounce back undelivered!?! Also know about MTB Pursuits, but don't know whether they rent out bicycles.

      Thanks!
