Hi all

We arrive in NZ (christchurch) for 9 days in november, but we don't know what to do!

We are both 22, but we dont want the 'lets get pissed every night' type of experience. We want to see as much as possible in the 9 days.

We like the thought of the hot springs, other natural scenary and bungee jumping etc

We were thinking of hiring a camper van so that we have freedom to go where we want when we want to, but will this be pointless for 9 days?

Please help us plan a NZ itinary!
Thanks :)

Best itinary - easy get your camper drive to the end of the road, toss a coin (Heads left, Tails right) and off you go.
You can see a fair bit in 9 days of the south island. and as your never more than 2hrs from the coast i'd just drive round it heading inland only for Central Otago/Westland and Mount Cook.
have a look at these threads for a bit of an idea:

Have a great time
