Off The Beaten Track West Coast Famil

A group of intrepid travel agents embarked on a adventure to uncover the hidden gems of our Untamed Natural Wilderness.

Their journey began aboard the luxurious TranzAlpine Train Scenic Plus, traversing breathtaking landscapes before arriving at the serene shores of Lake Brunner.

Luxuriating in boutique accommodations like Breakers Boutique and Gentle Annie Seaside, the agents delved into the region's natural wonders. They explored the fascinating Cape Foulwind Seal Colony Lookout, witnessed the majestic Oparara Arches with Oparara Guided Tours, and traversed the historic Denniston Plateau. Evenings were spent forging connections with local operators at networking events, fostering a deeper understanding of the West Coast's offerings.

No adventure is complete without a taste of the local scene. The agents savored delicious meals at the Little Wanganui Hotel and SnakeBite Brewery, while Vinnies Cafe and Pukeko Store and Cafe provided charming breakfast spots. Adrenaline-pumping activities like Off-Road Quad Biking with Franz Josef Wilderness Tours further enriched their experience.

Cultural immersion was on the menu as well. The agents explored the captivating Underworld Adventures Glowworm Cave Tour, steeped themselves in Maori history on the Mawhera Pounamu Pathway, and witnessed the craftsmanship of Hokitika at the National Kiwi Centre and the iconic Hokitika Driftwood Sign.

Capping off their exploration, the agents enjoyed a scenic flight back to Christchurch with Air New Zealand, their hearts brimming with memories and a newfound appreciation for the West Coast's magic. This immersive journey provided them with firsthand knowledge to craft unforgettable travel experiences for their clients.
