The trip to The Arthus's Pass from Christchurch took about 2 hours to reached the end point of the pass. Before you reach there you can already see the snow capped mountain from far. The view was spectacular and I felt that as if I am in a studio full of large mountain paintings. As you are near to the Pass the mountains become larger and majestically beautiful. You will feel that you are not in the real world! It is really a worth trip and I will definitely come back again.

We told them the type of hiking we were looking for, how difficult and how far, and they pointed us in the right direction!
