MOLESWORTH, ABEL TASMAN & FAREWELL SPIT
8 Day Hosted Small Group Tour.
We begin our 8-day adventure travelling south to Hanmer Springs and onto Molesworth Station. This vast landscape contains scree-scarred mountains, wide river valleys and tussock slopes and is New Zealand’s largest high-country station.
After our stop in Hanmer Springs, we then head towards Nelson, via Rainbow Station on the Maruia Stock Track with magnificent pristine beauty the South Island has to offer. Mountain ranges for as far as the eye can see, clear rivers that flow through the centre of the valley, hidden waterfalls created by the melting snow and the beauty of all things New Zealand is known and loved for.
During our time in Nelson, we enjoy a morning cruise of Abel Tasman National Park, before heading over the Takaka Hill to Farewell Spit, With open sea on one side and sheltered waters on the other, this massive sandspit has two entirely different faces and at 34kms long, makes it one of the world’s largest sandspits and a wetland of international importance. Following our adventuring days from Molesworth to Farewell Spit, we allow for some down time in Nelson for a rest and relax, before we begin our journey towards home, after what has surely been a touring highlight.
You may fly into Kapiti, Wellington or Blenheim and out of Nelson, Wellington or Kapiti to connect with this tour, our travel team is able to assist with flight arrangements if required.
