Nelson Tasman sparkles with golden beaches, artistic energy and quality cuisine.
Located at the north-west top of the South Island, the Nelson Tasman region is home to three spectacular national parks boasting diverse and distinctive landscape: from wide sandy coastlines with lush native bush to alpine lakes, snow covered mountains and pristine rivers. It’s a place that provides a backdrop of stunning scenery for plenty of leisurely adventure, both on and off the water.
As well as a stunning natural environment and one of the sunniest climates in the country, the region is renowned for the creative arts, with more than 300 working artists and a plethora of studios and galleries to visit.
Visitors can enjoy civilised adventures: hiking, cruising, kayaking and cycling by day, then relaxing in luxury accommodation in the evening, accompanied by fine local cuisine of succulent seafood, boutique wines and craft beers.
