West Coast Region

(3.9/5 based on 12,000+ reviews for top 30 attractions)
Things to do: nature, wildlife areas, trails
Set off on an active outdoor holiday in West Coast Region, a sparsely populated adventurer's playground with glaciers, rainforests, and other dramatic geological features. The long, narrow stretch of land is best experienced with your own transport, given the many things to do and the minimal infrastructure blotting the landscape. On the whole, West Coast Region remains wild and full of captivating vistas--of land, sea, and snow--with great caving and rafting opportunities. The coastal road takes in the most majestic sights and conveniently connects the region's thinly spread towns. With our international travel planner, New Zealand vacations can be built around trips to West Coast Region and other destinations in New Zealand.
