Day by Day Tour Itinerary
On arrival, make your way to your accommodation. The rest of today is at leisure to enjoy the local sights. The Nelson region is an area of diverse beauty that boasts the greatest number of sunshine hours in New Zealand. It is home to a thriving arts and crafts colony where locals enjoy a relaxed, easy-going lifestyle. It is also a great base to explore the Abel Tasman National Park with its numerous marine, wildlife and nature based activities.
Enjoy a full day gourmet wine tour visiting award-winning vineyards and sampling some of the region’s best wines. Nelson’s blend of mediterranean style climate as well as the landscape has produced ideal growing conditions for elegant whites and warm reds.
On your full day gourmet wine tour, you’ll visit many award-winning wineries of the Waimea Plains and Moutere Hills regions, including the oldest vineyard in the South Island. Chat to the owners and winemakers at the cellar door whilst you enjoy sampling a selection of wines made from the ten classic grapes grown in New Zealand. This fun, informative guided tour includes a superb lunch and all wine tastings.
This evening, enjoy a unique dining experience at the iconic Boat Shed restaurant. Standing proudly on the waterfront, with its polished floors and fantastic sea views, its difficult to believe that in the late 1880’s this was a base for boat building.
The restaurant has been the recipient of many awards and industry accolades for its menu, service and extensive wine list. You will thoroughly enjoy the ‘Trust the Chef’ dining experience where the chef chooses a series of dishes for you from the menu of the day and places it in the middle of the table for you to share!
Free time for some last minute sightseeing before you make your way out to the airport for your onward flight.

FAQ - Frequently Asked Questions
You won’t pay more by booking your short break holiday with Relaxing Journeys. We have access to discounted industry rates and special deals, only available to those in the travel trade. So the amount we make on each short break, is the difference between these rates and retail rates that you would pay if you booked it all yourself. Of course, you also get peace of mind that all is organised professionally and you get our fantastic service thrown in! There will be occasions where a property may release a ‘walk in’ deal that may better our quote, however our prices are the best available at the time of booking.
Your dedicated tour consultant will email you through a quote. If it looks good, then full payment is required to confirm the booking (within 45 days) or a deposit of $100 per person is required outside this period. This must be paid by credit card (Visa or Mastercard only). We do not charge credit card fees on our short break packages. If the properties listed in the holiday package are unavailable at this time, we will provide you with alternatives until you are happy.
We welcome bookings from anywhere in the world. You can see how much each package is using our currency converter on this page. Only the New Zealand Dollar (NZ$) prices on this site are accurate. Prices in other currencies have been converted for your convenience, and are there to help you to compare to your own currency. All of our New Zealand tours are charged in New Zealand Dollars. Your credit card company will convert the amount paid from your currency into NZD automatically for you.
Some short break packages do not include (or may not require) a hire car, or internal flights. Relaxing Journeys can organise these extras for you and include them in your quote if you wish – or you can just book the short break ‘as is’, and organise everything else yourself. These extras can be requested after choosing your date and clicking ‘Confirm Availability’ on the right of this page.
The cost of getting to & from the airport to your accommodation is generally not included, although on some occasions it is, in which case we have specifcally mentioned it in the itinerary. There are always plenty of taxis or shuttles waiting at the airport. You also have the option in most cases to catch a bus into the city centres.
Once your deposit has been paid and you have received your deposit confirmation, we will organise your short break and when completed (normally within 48 hours) we will email you confirmation. When you pay your balance (45 days before the start date) we will email you a ‘Short Break Voucher’ shortly after along with your arrival information and everything else you need. Print this off and take it with you to NZ.

Relaxing Journeys would have already booked and confirmed all the components of your holiday and we will have to cancel everything and adhere to each suppliers cancellation policy.
