On the north coast of the south island, this is a stunning tropical paradise with turquoise waters, rain forest, palm trees and an abundance of marine life, including dolphins.

The region has three national parks, including the fascinating rock formations of the Abel Tasman Walk. Also witness the spectacular mountain ranges in the Nelson Lakes National Park or some of the country’s oldest rock formations in the Kahurangi National Park.
