Tour Details

This full on air adventure is the scenic tour with it all – with absolutely jaw dropping views the whole way.  Don’t worry, your jaw will return to its usual position when you get back on ground. (Give it an hour or two.)

From Motueka we take you around Golden Bay, Kahurangi and Abel Tasman Parks and back again.  From lift off we follow the coast up to Harwoods hole, the deepest natural hole in the southern hemisphere and then on to Caanan Downs (where Peter Jackson filmed parts of his Movies “The Hobbit” and “Lord of the Rings.”)

Flying over over dramatic forested karst landscape at Takaka, you will also view Te Waikoropupu Springs (the second clearest natural springs in the world). From here we fly along the coast of Golden Bay to Separation Point and the Abel Tasman National Park. We then head to Awaroa and fly along the golden beaches of Abel Tasman National park and cruising past Split Apple Rock and one of the world’s 5 most beautiful beaches – Kaiteriteri Beach. Heading south back to Motueka you will be sighing again at idyllic views of off shore islands, brilliant blue coastal waters and inlets, and golden sand beaches.

The highlights of this tour are many, showing as it does the awesome natural diversity of the Nelson Tasman region. Add to that the thrill of flying to the up to the northern most tip of the South Island, above New Zealand’s longest sand spit, Farewell Spit. There are many fascinating places we point out on this trip like extraordinary mountain wilderness of our Kahurangi National Park, the Westhaven Inlet marine and wildlife reserve, Anatoki Salmon Farm and beautiful Pupu Springs.

You won’t miss any spectacular view because your Pilot, you tour guide, knows the best of this area.  You will return having experienced the real spirit of the Abel Tasman.
