6 Day Fully Hosted Small Group Tour.

Farewell Spit is an area of outstanding natural beauty stretching 30 kilometres into the Tasman Sea. Designated as a bird sanctuary since the 1930s, Farewell Spit is a haven for over 90 birdlife species. Not accessible to the public, the only way to access this hidden gem is by a tour. On this six-day trip, we also enjoy some time in Nelson and the spectacular Abel Tasman National Park, before travelling to the garden city of Christchurch via the alpine village of Hanmer Springs.

This Nelson and Farewell Spit tour is designed and fully operated by Leisure Time Travel, one of our carefully selected tour “partner operated tours”.  A “partner operated tour” is another tour operator we work closely with. They have been specially selected by us, as we believe they offer the same high standard and quality of service, you would expect when touring with YOURTours.  All “partner operated tours” can be booked through YOURTravel & Tours.  All “Partner Operator tours” provide their own Booking Terms and Conditions and the relevant T&C’s will be provided at the time of your booking enquiry.
