Nelson Tasman’s stunning natural landscapes provide the ideal backdrop for embarking on an adventure, enjoying the natural environment and tasting our wonderful local food, wine, and beer (and let’s not forget cider!).

With three national parks within easy reach of Nelson and Motueka 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, jetboating, stand-up paddleboarding, skydiving – you name it, it’s probably on offer here.

We’re highly connected to all these great experiences with rental vehicles, guided coach and minivan tours and an accessible airport. We also have scenic helicopter operators to get you where you want to go. It’s really easy to get around.
