With the Southern Alps taking centre stage, the intense scenery alone is enough to fill your days on the West Coast.
You can expect things to be different on the West Coast– more real, bigger than anticipated, greater than you thought. Wedged between towering mountains and the crashing sea, the West Coast is the region forgotten by the rest of its country. Our trees are skyscrapers that touch the sky, our rivers and lakes are the best New Zealand has to offer and our attractions are authentic. Famed for its record rainfall, but with sunny days so crisp and clear you will be pinching yourself, there are attractions here for every type of visitor, even the discerning ones. So if you yearn for something more from your holiday, real people, real towns and real experiences, then this is the place for you. Be prepared to be astounded, have your breath taken away, be at a loss for words, as this is the West Coast.
