South Island Trip Day 3 - Arthurs Pass

OK, so if you want to get from Christchurch on the east coast of the SI across to the west coast, youve got to cross the southern alps, and of the 3 roads across there, Arthurs Pass is the most well known and highest. At an altiutude of almost 1000m above sea level there is snow on the mountains even in the height of summer.

Its a great drive, and lots of photographic opportunities. The population of NZ is so small (4 million) that even on popular highways, there are long stretches where you have the road all to your self.
