Pioneer Heritage Trail

Intro to the West Coast

This is one of our favourite South Island tours, travelling along bush-clad roads and quiet highways. Discover the real West Coast as you journey from Nelson Lakes to Greymouth via Springs Junction.

NOTICE: Previously high traffic volumes caused by earthquake diversions had made this ride unpleasant. Since mid 2018 traffic has gradually returned to the east coast so we no longer advise riders to avoid this route.
