Full Description

From our convenient heli-base at Nelson Airport you will board one of our modern helicopters and track west into the heart of the Kahurangi. Our first stop lands at a remote alpine location where we can enjoy the overwhelming surrounds of New Zealand’s second largest National Park. From the mountains we descend further west to Westhaven Inlet and track the rugged and remotely beautiful wild North West coastline for a landing on the beach, where we can explore sand dunes and eroded rock formations. Here we will sit back, relax and enjoy a gourmet picnic lunch and glass of local wine. After lunch we lift off to explore Farewell Spit and Golden Bay before our final landing at Awaroa Bay in the Abel Tasman National Park. A short bush walk through aged Manuka forest takes us up close to the pristine waters and golden sand beaches that make the Abel Tasman world famous.
