Explore the best of Marlborough and Tasman at the top of the South Island on the ultimate bike, walk and sailing holiday. Walk through pristine native forest on the Queen Charlotte track, cycle along Nelson’s Great Taste Trail and sail a catamaran in the famous Abel Tasman National Park. Relax and enjoy the many local galleries, craft breweries, boutique stores, wineries and the renowned World of Wearable Arts that these regions are known for.

The journey begins by visiting the breathtaking Marlborough Sounds before heading towards the golden sandy beaches of the Abel Tasman. Riding along flat or gently rolling terrain, through vineyards and along coastal tracks, we arrive at the stunning Lake Rotoiti in the Nelson Lakes National Park surrounded by high mountain peaks. Our final day returns us to Christchurch over the scenic Lewis Pass after the unique Natural Flames experience. This is a fun and active adventure which will be enjoyed by adults and children alike and is suited to beginner cyclists.
