Sweet as South -- too much time in Queenstown?

21 Apr 2014 Faye asked


The Sweet as South itinerary interests me but with 4 days in Queenstown, would it be too long for someone who is not a thrill-seeker? The only thrill seeking activity I plan on doing is white water rafting.

    You’ve got to remember that it is really only 3 full days as you leave early on day 4 and get in later the first day. There will be plenty to do there even if you aren’t a thrill seeker. It will also be nice to not be so on the go about half way through the trip to rest, do laundry, etc.
