Haast

Haast Te Wahi Pounamu is an untamed wilderness that is so striking and remote UNESCO awarded it the status of being a "World Heritage" area. While the tales of gold prospectors returning empty handed from this region are legendary, you will find spectacular beaches, dunes, lakes and wetlands chock full of natural wonders. The beauty and wilderness is heightened by the backdrop of the Southern Alps, New Zealand’s highest mountain range with 19 peaks reaching three thousand meters or more.
