Arthur's Pass National Park Travel Guide: 86 reviews and 317 photos

Going to University in Christchurch, Arthurs Pass was one of the closest escapes to the wild. Only 2hours drive from Chch - it's really easy to get to.
There are too many walks to talk about so I'll hit on some of my favorites.
Talk to the team in the DOC office - they will let you know the best track for your ability and current conditions. Buy yourself a Map - and know how to use it.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Remote.... and adventure is right there.
  • Cons:Can get cold and wet.... and then there are the sandflies.
  • In a nutshell:The further from the road - the better it is....
