We (family of 4 which includes 2 kids aged 4 /8 yrs) are planning for 7 days self drive trip of the South Island.
From the foroum I see that Milford is highly recommended and not to be missed...which leaves us to pick between Mt Cook or the Glaciers Fox/Franz (to avoid backtracking --> which adds to driving time but more importantly will be tiring for the kids)
Which one would you recommend ?
We are looking for a family scenic holiday, and plan to have a heli ride with a snowlanding (either ways)
We fly in to Queenstown and exit via Christchurch (all flight bookings are done and cannot be changed)
