West Coast

Experience

Never more than 50km wide but stretching more than 600km north to south, the West Coast region is sandwiched between the Southern Alps and the coast. One of the most unpopulated regions in New Zealand, the region is made up of several towns with the major ones being Hokitika, Westport and Greymouth with a combined population of around 20,000.

Thanks to it's unique geography the West Coast has a striking landscape of 3000m snow-capped mountains and rugged coastline, including numerous rivers, beaches, glaciers, forest and other natural attractions. Accessible via Arthur's Pass from Christchurch or Haast Pass leaving from Wanaka or Queenstown, most people explore the area via car or camper van due to the size of the region.

Regrettably, our content creator seems to enjoy adventuring more than he does finishing this portion of the website. Nonetheless we are working very hard to convince him to hang up his hiking boots for a few weeks and get this finished. Unfortunately for us, he's a master of bushcraft and has thus far eluded our attempts, however he is very fond of chocolate chip cookies so our current plan involves an incredibly long cookie trail starting at the top of the mountain, leading down to the office door and over to his desk. Once inside we will lock the door (leaving him with a generous stash of cookies and tea of course) and hide the key until he is finished. We are very optimistic for this plan, so please bear with us as we are trying our very best to get this page completed soon.

P.S - If anyone has previous experience in luring rogue adventurers back to the office for a few weeks, please get in touch as we could use some tips and tricks!
