West Coast & Fiordland

With the backdrop of the mighty Southern Alps, clear rivers and lakes, vast  forests, diverse wetlands, accessible glaciers and wild beaches, the West Coast of New Zealand is a treasure trove of natural sites waiting to be explored.

The Great Coast Road, stretching from Westport to Greymouth, is arguably one of the top coastal drives in the world.

Why visit West Coast & Fiordland ?

  • Take an overnight cruise around spectacular Milford or Doubtful Sound
  • Heli-hike upon Fox or Franz Josef Glacier
  • Enjoy an ultimate fishing day out in Fiordland
  • Take the scenic Tranz Alpine train from Christchurch to Greymouth
  • Pull on your hiking boots for some of NZ’s greatest treks

Fiordland is one of the most dramatic and beautiful parts of New Zealand.

Carved by glaciers over 100,000 years the landscape is one where waterfalls cascade hundreds of metres into deep black fiords; where ancient rainforest  clings to mountains and where shimmering lakes and granite peaks look as they did a thousand years ago.

Fiordland National Park is a World Heritage Site and includes Milford, Dusky and Doubtful Sounds. Milford Sound was described by Rudyard Kipling as the Eighth Wonder of the World.
