Arthur's Pass
By Therese Bruning
19 May 2011

 After picking up our car at Christchurch Airport & deciding to head straight over to the West Coast of the South Island, we decided to break our journey at Arthur’s Pass so that we didn’t have to rush. It’s a small village set amongst the Southern Alps & popular for hiking, fishing, mountaineering & boating.

It’s also a stopping point for the Tranz-Alpine railway between Christchurch & Greymouth - popular for its stunning scenic views en route.


The views can change dramatically – from wide shingle-filled river beds to deep gorges to lush rainforest in the mountains where the cloud is so low, you can’t see more than a few metres in front of you when driving (another reason that some journeys can take a little longer than planned).

There isn’t much at the actual village, so unless you’re planning on experiencing many of the activities on offer, one night should be enough.
