Hunt for greenstone or gold; enjoy a leisurely lunch at one of the restaurants overlooking the Tasman Sea & back to Greymouth for dinner.

Another delightful days drive is through the Otira Gorge, over the Viaduct, enjoy lunch at Arthur’s Pass then return through the Southern Alps to have a swim or fish at Lake Brunner on your way back to the Chalet for dinner.
