Recommended by our Airbnb host, Sam, we headed out to Rob Roy Glacial Trail in the Mount Aspiring National Park. It’s an hour drive west from Wanaka to the trail head.
Leaving Haast, we headed into the territory of Mount Aspiring National Park. An 134km drive to Wanaka and plenty to see along the way.
Today we drove from Hokitika to Haast by way of Hokitika Gorge, a total distance of about 340km.
There are so much to see on the West Coast. Punakaiki Pancake Rocks and Blowholes, Franz Josef Glacier Walk, Fox Glacier, Hokitika Gorge Walk and more. Depending on our pace, we could spend 2-3 days on the West Coast.
With three national parks, visitor can enjoy everything from golden beaches to high mountain peaks in Nelson/Tasman.
The rolling hills, the lush greens and the gem like waters, New Zealand is just like the Middle Earth depicted in The Lord of Rings and The Hobbits.
