There is a lot of construction on the roads through Arthur's Pass (during January/February when we were there). When there wasn't construction, the roads were a tiny bit dangerous, though extremely gorgeous. For the walking trails, we loved our views. We did the track up...More

This is a nice easy walk for most people with a short hill. After the walk one go to the edge of town the whole RT will take about 30 minutes of leisure walking. There is a small waterfall which should be quite impressive during...More
