Particularly interested in your feedback for the drive to Fox Glacier, understand that its quite a long drive, but i am not really keen on staying in Hokitika or GreysMouth.
Also is it better to go the other way around eg. from christchurch to mt cook and do the trip from Fox Glaicier to Christchurch as the last leg of the journey. Which way is more scenic on Arthurs pass drive ? is it going from christchurch or towards christchurch ?
Thanks for any reply in advance.
