Best Road Trip in New Zealand: Must see tips for your upcoming adventure!
 
Even before I start, I must admit that I am a big fan of “Lord of the Rings”. I have read the book 2 times and have seen the  entire series of movies about 36 times. It had been my dream to visit the vibrant hobbit holes since the time I got to know that the movie set is preserved for the tourists. And don’t get me wrong. New Zealand has lot more to offer than the magnanimity of the movie locations for LOTR. The majestic landscapes that I drew as a kid in my drawing class, came to life when I was in New Zealand. The mountains, lakes, snow-capped peaks, lush green grass, cattle and the serenity of New Zealand made it very difficult to do anything but admire nature. 
 
Here is the summary of our 12 days trip. Our itinerary was as follows:
  • Auckland (Hobbiton, Mt. Eden & Waitakere Ranges Regional Park) – 3 nights
  • Te Anau (Glowworms tour, Milford Sound) – 2 nights
  • Queenstown (Mt. Nicholas Farms Tour, Glenorchy, Paradise, Luge) – 2 nights
  • Mt. Cook (Trek to Hookers Valley, Sir Edmund Hillary Stargazing) – 2 nights
  • Christchurch (City tour, Kaikoura) – 2 nights
