Everyone going to south island nz should definitely take the time to travel the Haast pass. The scenery is spectacular from rolling hills covered with sheep, cows, deer to lush moss covered national park. This drive has everything from snow capped mountains with numerous spectacular...More

Plenty to enjoy along the way...we spent a whole day taking in all the scenery and stopped at each waterfall and feature along the way. Our favourite was probably the Blue Pools but very stop was worthwhile.

What an amazing drive it is through Haast pass, rugged mountains, moss drenched trees and waterfalls abound. Plenty of places to pull over for photos and enjoy the peace and serinity. Leave plenty of time for this awesome drive.

As with all roads on the west coast you need lots of time to enjoy the scenery around you and the ample stopping points where you can stretch your legs to see a waterfall etc. Not something to be rushed.

We drove through this beautiful part of the country and was enchanted by the rugged scenery. Air was fresh and cool with clear blue lakes, streams along the way. Nature at its best.

The walk is not very long, I did it in about 5 minutes as a fast walker. A stroll i think would only take 15 minutes. It's not paved but there is a defined track that you could bring a stroller on, however the swing bridges... More
