Arthur’s Pass is the road that connects the East and West coast in the middle of the South Island, over a blummin big set of mountains. If your a walker head up here. The DOC campsites around Arthur’s Pass Village are all FREE and awesome settings, photo is one of our sites, right next to the river, no other vehicles around, just watch the flies.
Walking Option, if you can manage a long day – Avalanche Peak. 1900m peak, very steep in sections both walking up and the drops next to you, great views if you get a clear day. Might be one to miss on windy days.
