South to North Island New Zealand

From North to South Island - Ferry vs. Air - New Zealand Forum from North to South Island - ferry against plane? Your plan is: to reach Auckland - Northland for 6 nights - without going to Wellington - to visit the South Island? Can you give us some detail of your South Island plan? If you plan to stay in Abel Tasman National Park, the diversion you might have to take if the street is not yet open is not a big worry, because then you are going in that direction anyway.

When you are not going to stay on the South Island, it will take you (almost) one of the days to get from Picton to Christchurch by circuit. It can be very nice if you have good wheather for your cross. The Marlborough Sounds are the perfect place to take a look at the landscape at the crossroads.

They also have much more leg room than in the small planes bouncing between the islands -) I' m just joking, the trip is so brief that it doesn't make any difference. However, with the arrival at the arrival point, the check-in, the flights, the way from the airports and also the delivery and collection of rented vehicles at both ends..... Flights will not be much quicker than the ferry).

There was no need to worry about picking up hire vehicles on either side of the boat. Anecdotal I would say it's quite fast (I think it's not a new reservation, just a new vehicle that you collect). We' ve reserved both the national and the ferries a few month in advance as well (' I would suggest for bustling December).

The flight was less expensive (we traversed the shuttle with our campervan, which was small enough to have the normal toll). However, you should also look at the passable fares, which are significantly lower.
