Tips about the Journey: The road to Arthur's Pass is in excellent condition and is highly maintained, however there are icy spots during the winter months, especially in the windy bits. The harsh conditions cause very sharp shards of rock to fall into the road, these are notorius for causing punctures, we suggest you go easy and drive to the conditions.
