Hi there,

I'm booked to go on the trip on the 21st April - Can't wait!

I've been speaking to a bunch of friends who have been to NZ in the past and done a number of the activities described in the itinerary. They have literally had nothing negative to say - they recommend NZ 100%.

Would love to hear about your trip when you come back Harry!!!

I've been skiing in Queenstown before and spent a lot of time at Auckland Airport on my way through to the States but haven't done the rest of the country!

I did this trip in May 2014, fell in love with New Zealand forever, wanna go back... I mean Canada where I reside is beautiful too but NZ is amazing and everything is so close and people are the friendliest on Earth.

But to be fair we had the best NZ G adventures guide - Auto - that what made experience awesome. Take lots of money with you cause you will want to do all optional activities:) hang gliding, sky diving, canyon swing, kayaking, dolphin swim, glacier hiking (must!), jet boating (must!), cave diving ( tumu tumu - must!) etc etc

Oh thats awesome. Thanks!

I'm heading out on this tour in a month, and I'm also bringing my hero2. What mounts did you use most? I'm trying to only bring the necessary mounts to save space.

Cheers and happy travels.

Molle.

keep in mind that weather is tropical in North Island and much cooler the further south you go. Bring layers for a range of temperatures.

Happy travels!
