Welcome to Haast Region

As a fitting prelude to the natural beauty surrounding Haast, part of Te Wāhipounamu–Southwest New Zealand World Heritage Area, jaw-dropping views line both routes to the region. Linking Haast to Fox Glacier and the rest of the West Coast, a scenic 120km stretch of highway is chopped through lowland forest, with views inland to sheer-sided valleys and intermittent but grand views seaward. Winding south is the fearsome Haast Pass Hwy, 145 jagged kilometres that inspire gasps of wonder (as well as a tight grip on the steering wheel).
