About the West Coast

The West Coast of New Zealand is an untamed natural wilderness.

With scenery so stunning it takes your breath away and sunsets so impressive even Instagram told us to tone it down. It takes a while to get around the largest region in New Zealand, but the journey is the best bit.

From the highest of mountains and stunning coastal scenery to copious rainforests and absolutely everything in between – you’re just spoilt for choice all of the way.

Along your journey you will meet Coasters (real kiwi locals) who will provide you with true Kiwi hospitality.
