going in march. Read about the earthquake but found out some of the routes are already open so hopefully by March will be alright. If not we will change to go to Akaroa.

Anybody can recommend a good helicopter operator departing from mount cook. Might skip franz josef and do the heli-ride from mount cook instead.

From what I remember, the alternate road up sh1 from chch to kaikoura is open to public, but the normal roads (which had the rock slide) is gonna be closed for the foreseeable future. So you need to really plan your driving.

Most towns along the way have cafes for you to stop and lim kopi before continuing.
