West Coast Region INTRODUCTION
Laced by the Tasman Sea and hugged by the Southern Alps, the West Coast of New Zealand is bursting with wild, untamed beauty.
Here you’ll find some of the country’s most inspiring natural wonders, from the iconic Oparara arches near Karamea to the 30 million year-old Pancake Rocks and blowholes.
Brave the suspension bridge over cerulean-coloured waters at Hokitika Gorge, then grab your warmest coat for a walk across the West Coast’s almighty glaciers. Entering the enormous Fox & Franz Josef Glaciers is like turning back time to when the ice age took the earth.
Spanning over 13km and dropping 2,600m from the Southern Alps, the Fox Glacier has advanced over millennia, and yet at 300m above sea level is one of the easiest to visit in the world.
At just a half hour drive away, the Franz Josef Glacier echoes its counterpart’s convenience, though a helicopter or ski plane will have to take you onto either one.
