New Zealand Driving Map Christchurch / Fox Glacier / Christchurch

 

Start: Christchurch
Finish: Christchurch
Recommended Length: 5 Days

Journey from east to west and back again, taking in many of the South Island’s major attractions. After enjoying the cultural richness of Christchurch, discover the wild world of Arthur’s Pass – an excellent place to take a hike. The west coast towns of Greymouth and Hokitika will introduce you to gold mining and greenstone before you move on to the cool experience of Franz Josef and Fox Glaciers. Have a fun night out at the lakeside town of Wanaka then ascend to the peaks and lakes of Aoraki Mt Cook.
