Activities

Nelson Tasman’s stunning natural landscapes provide the ideal backdrop for embarking on an adventure, enjoying the natural environment and savouring the taste of our wonderful local food, wine, beer and cider.

With three national parks on our doorstep, we offer a surprisingly diverse range of activities throughout the year. Our benign climate and high sunshine hours mean it’s almost always a great time for hiking, sea kayaking, canyoning, biking, rafting, jet-boating, stand-up paddle boarding, and skydiving – you name it, you'll probably find it here.

But if the outdoors isn't your style, there is still plenty to keep you entertained, with a full year-round events calendar, and a selection of extraordinary art galleries, museums, and restaurants to enjoy. 

There are plenty of opportunities to get out and explore the stunning natural landscapes Nelson Tasman is renowned for.
