On arrival, please collect your rental car and make your way to your hotel. The rest of today is at leisure to enjoy the local sights.
The Nelson region is an area of diverse beauty that enjoys a Mediterranean-type climate. It boasts the greatest number of sunshine hours in New Zealand as well as being home to a thriving arts and crafts colony where locals enjoy a relaxed, easy-going lifestyle.
Nelson is a great base to explore the Abel Tasman National Park.With numerous family style activities available including jet boating, rafting, horse treks, cycle tours, mountain biking, mini-golf, fun parks and much more!
Visit Happy Valley Adventures, a 15 minute drive to the northeast of Nelson city towards Cable Bay, this morning and experience the Skywire Flying Fox – the world’s longest flying fox adventure. You’ll soar like a bird for over 3kms and up to 150 metres above the beautiful native forest canopy on this amazing eco-ride. Securely fastened in one of four racing car seats in the Skywire chair, your ride takes you forwards and backwards for nearly 10 minutes, reaching speeds of almost 100kph!
After your Skywire adventure, you may like to experience some of the other attractions like paintball, horse treks, quad-bike rides or the Argo amphibious vehicle.
It is a 90 minute drive to Tata Beach in the Abel Tasman National Park. This is the starting point for your guided half day kayaking adventure. Gently paddle out to nearby Tata Islands, home to New Zealand’s largest shag colony.
Amble past the resident seal family while the penguins that pop up occasionally, will delight both you and the children. Pass through a beautiful granitic archway to Wainui Bay, home to some amazing rock formations and secluded golden beaches.
No previous kayaking experience is required as all ages and abilities are catered for in stable double kayaks. This is a fun day out the whole family will enjoy!

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.

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.
