The challenges of organising a multi adventure holiday

As I cannot see a map of the New Zealand’s South Island my challenge is determining where exactly the various adventures are located and then using Google to locate the hire companies.

I have sort of overcome working out where each place is located by finding pre-packaged tours and following their routes to a degree. This is time consuming but I’m finding some really great NZ website that give ideas where places are.

Wikipedia is a great resource as it tells me surrounding areas, size of town and in some cases kms from other main towns or cities.

I’m starting with a cycle hire and have to e-mail all the various hire companies to determine if they have a tandem cycle. I am doing this with all the various adventures.

Accommodation and travel should not be an issue as we will hire a small motor home so we’ve got it all in one.

Hi to all and a huge thank you to Guide Dogs NSW/Act for my Unseen Travel Award prize.

As my outline indicates I will be travelling to New Zealand for the experience of my life.  I hope to make some terrific memory pictures.

The plan is to do seven days of outdoor action filled adventures. Such as cycling, rafting, kayaking, glacier walking and hiking.
