Travel with Atomic Shuttles (Formally Coast to Coast) between Christchurch and the West Coast via Arthurs Pass - the most spectacular of the island's three alpine passes. The lure of gold ensured the building of this unique road through the most unlikely of terrains, overcoming seemingly insurmountable engineering obstacles

Your coach travels daily between Christchurch and the West Coast, transporting you in air conditioned comfort and safety. Tour commentaries and photo stops (where possible) are included.

From the coasts to the plains to rugged rock, native bush and the Alps your journey passes through a rapidly changing landscape rich in natural unspoiled beauty.
