Three Days and two nights With Back Road Adventures

Enjoy sections of The Great Taste Trail and then go off trail to quiet country back roads. Allow us to take you to places most people don’t know exist. Experience the tranquillity of the countryside, hop gardens, vineyards, orchards, majestic rivers, with a stunning backdrop of Kahurangi National Park.

Many of our routes also pass wineries as well as artisans’ studios and galleries. Our detailed route notes help you find hidden gems and carefully selected locations where you can taste the best food, wines and beers in the region. All this and yet never too far away from a coffee stop! This tour can give you a real flavour of the area.

Possible itinerary – day 1 Nelson to Mapua (35kms), day 2 Kaiteriteri to Mapua (up to 43kms), day 3 Mahana and Moutere – boutique world class wineries and artisans (25 – 37kms) with a complimentary transfer to the airport at the end of day 3.

This is a great way to see the region as a weekend break or part of a longer holiday. We are also happy to help you extend your stay and include a day or more in Abel Tasman National Park.
