bus from Nelson to Franz Josef good idea?

Hi there....I know the journey is quite long from Nelson to Franz....but is the scenery amazing? or should I fly to ChCh and then take the train? This second option does eat into a lot of time... but I just want to know what the journey down the west coast will be like?

any help???

Yes the scenery is amazing.The West Coast of the south Island-is of the most beautiful drives in New Zealand , in my opinion.Mountains,thick forest,lots and lots of sea.Well worth it.Enjoy!
