We started our Kiwi trip in Christchurch. We rented a RV with a bed and a small kitchen (the kitchen comes out from underneath the bed and you have to open the back of the van to cook). The total price was around $2,000 for two weeks, including insurance.
After seeing Milford Sound, we decided to head south, instead of heading northwest to see more glaciers (like most tourists do).
A three hour drive south of Christchurch is the town of Oamaru. It's a great jumping off point and place to stay overnight to explore the nearby Moeraki Boulders.
This is from the country New Zealand. The Southern Alps is a mountain range extending along much of the length of New Zealand's South Island, reaching its greatest elevations near the island's western side. The mountains are cut through with glacial valleys and lakes.
