First off, New Zealand’s West Coast headlines natural wonders. Travellers will marvel at the awe-inspiring Franz Josef and Fox Glaciers, and guided hikes will help them get up close to ancient ice formations. Then, the Paparoa National Park is straight-up unforgettable for its pancake rock formations, limestone caves, and lush subtropical forests. Witness the untamed beauty of Punakaiki’s Pancake Rocks and Blowholes, a geological wonder.

Secondly, immerse yourself in the rich Maori heritage of the region. Visit local museums and cultural centres to know about Maori traditions and indigenous history, and we thoroughly recommend signing up for cultural experiences like haka performances and traditional storytelling sessions.

Then, knock yourself out with the region’s diverse wildlife. Spot the rare and iconic kiwi bird, explore native bird sanctuaries, and watch for fur seals, dolphins, and even penguins along the coastline. The West Coast is also amazing when it comes to adventure. Go hiking in lush rainforests, embark on thrilling helicopter rides over glaciers, try your hand at gold panning, or brave the white-water rapids of the region’s rivers. For adrenaline junkies, there’s skydiving, jet boating, and more. Experience skydiving, jet boating, gold panning, and white-water rafting for an adrenaline rush like no other.

There are plenty of guided tours and hikes that take you to the heart of the stunning Franz Josef and Fox Glaciers. The TranzAlpine Railway offers a great journey on one of the world’s most scenic train routes, offering breath-taking views of the Southern Alps and lush landscapes.

Best Time to Visit West Coast

The best time to visit New Zealand’s West Coast depends on the kind of holiday you’re booking and the type of activities you want to enjoy. The region experiences a temperate maritime climate, which means it has relatively mild temperatures throughout the year. However, it’s important to note that the West Coast is known for its high rainfall, which contributes to the lush rainforests and glaciers in the area.

For warm and dry weather, plan your trip in summer (December to February). Autumn (March to May) offers milder temperatures and beautiful foliage, while winter (June to August) is ideal for glacier-related activities. Spring (September to November) brings blooming wildflowers, rainshowers, fewer tourists and therefore cheaper hotel rates.
