Four hiking-filled days away from the hustle of mainstream tourism. Excellent overnight hikes in the alpine ranges of Kahurangi National Park and among the crystal clear rivers and limestone canyons of Paparoa National Park. Stay at a private campsite overlooking the mighty Buller Gorge. Hike through lush rainforest, explore glowworm caves and watch the antics of New Zealand fur seal pups at a breeding colony. Finish the Coast and Canyons in Greymouth with the option to ride the afternoon TranzAlpine train (additional cost) back to Christchurch.
