One of the reasons that renting a campervan was definitely worth it is the amazing drives between locations. The South Island definitely has no flyover states. For some of the windy drives with minimal guard rails, driving on the left side of the road, you definitely need a confident driver, and driving at night is a bit much, but still worth it.
We made a number of scenic stops on our drive out to Aoraki Mount Cook National Park, and arrived just in time for sunset.
We did some evening exploring around the base area before making dinner and enjoying our coldest night yet in the South Island winter.
