The West Coast is regarded as one of the best road trips in the world.
600 kilometres of very scenic road, from Kahurangi Point in the north to Awarua Point in the south.
This is West Coast’s Untamed Natural Wilderness at its best with rugged coastlines, beautiful mountains vistas and lush greens with a very high proportion of native bush, much of it being native temperate rainforest.
There is so much to see and do and we know everyone travel in different ways.
