Your drive from Abel Tasman National Park to Charleston, takes you through Motueka and Buller Gorge. You will get your first glimpse of the West Coast on your way through Charleston to Punakaikai.
Today you will adventure out on the Rainforest Train and Cave Rafting, taking you through the native bush before you enter the caves with the best glow-worms in New Zealand. Then float through the caves and emerge to gently raft downstream.
Today you will drive through Hokitika, Franz Josef and Fox Glacier to reach the tiny settlement of Bruce Bay which is right on the beach with views of Mt Cook.
Take a short drive into Fox Glacier today whether it be a bit of adventure or just to browse through this quaint village.
The scenery changes yet again as you cross the Haast Pass, continue the drive passed Lake Hawea into Wanaka.
You may want to stop off on the way and do a short walk, or pick up a mountain bike and ride the cycle track along the Clutha River.
On your second stay in Wanaka, seek a little adventure on the 4WD journey exploring terrain that most locals haven't seen. Take in the breath taking views over Lake Wanaka to see the snow capped peaks.
