7 Day Fully Hosted Small Group Tour.

This 7-day journey takes us to an extraordinary, vibrant region where art and businesses thrive together amongst the stunning natural landscape it is renowned for.  With diverse geography the Tasman Region captures everything from long golden beaches to untouched forests and rugged mountains.


Leaving Kapiti we journey to our base in Nelson via the Cook Strait and the lovely Queen Charlotte Sound.  Our journey in Nelson and region sees us exploring the striking scenery from mountains to the shores, the wonderful world of Wearable Arts, the artisans of Nelson, the food, colours and not forgetting the famous sunshine.  We embark on a private charter boat scenic cruise through the Abel Tasman National Park before heading over the Takaka Hill and discover another world in Golden Bay.


Continuing on, some of us take a journey to amazing Farewell Spit, whilst the rest of us explore the Golden Bay region, the choice is yours.


The end of our journey sees us leaving sunny Nelson behind, heading back to Picton and then Wellington via the beautiful Marlborough region.

You may fly in and out of Nelson to connect with this tour, our travel team is able to assist with flight arrangements if required.
