Full description
From Nelson Airport, take a spectacular scenic flight over the golden sands and azure waters of Abel Tasman National Park. From there it's a short trip to Te Waikoropupu Springs, where you can take a 30-minute bush walk past historic gold diggings to some of the clearest water in the world, followed by a scenic drive around the limestone rocks and beaches of Golden Bay to Totaranui at the northern entrance of Abel Tasman National Park. 

There is plenty of time to explore the golden beaches. Take a dip in the sea, a romantic walk in the bush or simply relax and soak up the tranquility and peace of the quiet end of the Park. Then take a perfect cruise by bush-fringed beaches through to Kaiteriteri - spot seals and dolphins along the way, and a shuttle back to Nelson Airport.
