Arthur’s Pass Village is a township in New Zealand’s South Island that boasts an enviable location amid the Southern Alps. A scenic drive along State Highway 73 will take you to this modest village, where devotees of Mother Nature will have the time of their lives. One of the most rewarding hiking trails is Arthur’s Pass Walking Track, which leads to Arthur Dudley Dobson Memorial. Since you’ll be on an elevation of 739 meters (2,424.5 feet), expect a spectacular view of the town and the surrounding mountains. Devil’s Punchbowl Waterfall, a 131-meter (430-feet) waterfall is also a stunning sight. Skiing enthusiasts should visit around mid-June to October for a memorable experience in the alps.
