Tour overview:


The access road is an activity on its own, affording marvellous views and hinting at what is to follow. The alpine region can be easily reached after one and a half hours in time for lunch with the rest of the day spent wandering among granite slabs and the biggest selection of alpine plants to be found in one area in New Zealand.

This part of Kahurangi National Park is one of New Zealand’s most interesting for visitors, with its
impressive mountain and bush scenery, remarkable botany and geology and interesting human stories.

The Mount Arthur area has many special geological features. Nowhere else in New Zealand has such a complex series of ancient rocks been eroded into such distinctively different landscapes.
