Golden Bay

This diverse area with alpine valleys , tranquil rivers , and golden sand beaches is a secret even to a lot of kiwis.

Known by the locals and visitors alike for its beautiful scenery , arts/crafts and adventure sites , its a true hidden gem

Located in the north west corner of the South Island , the drive from Nelson is stunning.

On our tours you will drive through vineyards producing some off New Zealand’s finest wines , valleys growing Hops for beer , and quaint Bays with golden sand.

From there you will pass over Takaka Hill descending into Abel Tasman National Park with its amazing views of the park and open sea .

Waikoropupu Springs (Pupu) is a great place to stop and stretch the legs.

A comfortable walk on raised wooden tracks crossing back and forth over the crystal clear flowing water supplied by the springs is recommended.

It is said to be the purist water in the Southern Hemisphere and touted by locals to be the cleanest in the world.

If its adventure you like then check out one of the many hikes , mountain bike trails , or kayak the Bays and inlets exploring the coastline.

Golden Bay might be a little remote but its not short of beauty and adventure.

At Luxury Tours Of New Zealand we think this is a must see hidden gem.

Let our driver/guides  help you enjoy this area and many more.
