About this pass

The Southern Round Up heads up the coastline from Christchurch instead of cutting straight over to the West Coast. This way you get to see Kaikoura, Blenheim, Picton, Kaiteriteri, the Abel Tasman National Park and its famous golden beaches.

If you’re short on time this is a great way to see the highlights of the South Island. If you’re not short on time you can always add the Milford Explorer or Deep South later to see even more.
