Overview

For many travelers, the opportunity to explore the untamed wilderness of New Zealand is a fascinating proposition. Our Wild Northwest tour offers travelers the freedom to explore the majestic beauty of New Zealand's diverse landscapes at a comfortable, leisurely pace. The tour begins with an early 7:30 AM departure to the Waimea Plains, passes through the historic Upper Moutere and then ascends Takaka Hill.

After traversing the granite and marble rock outcroppings dispersed throughout the terrain, travelers will have the chance to take a short hike through this ancient landscape and into the picturesque forest remnant in the vicinity. They will also have an opportunity to gaze back at Nelson and the spectacular vista of Fisherman Island and the popular Abel Tasman National Park. Additional landmarks viewed on this tour from an elevation of 971 meters include Kahurangi National Park and the serene Golden Bay.

Although the Wild Northwest tour covers a significant amount of terrain, visitors will remain excited and invigorated thanks to the sheer diversity of the experiences to be had on this particular route. In addition to the aforementioned natural landmarks, visitors will enjoy a variety of home-baked goodies and refreshments using the abundant natural ingredients found here. Then it's on to what many consider as the clearest water in the world, Pupu Springs.

The climax of this particular route is undoubtedly the opportunity to gaze out over the sea and sand dunes from the rocky promontories found along the periphery of the region’s coastline. After a post-lunch walk through stock, Dune Lakes and Maori food pits, travelers emerge from a patch of regenerating coastal bush and will enjoy one last opportunity to embrace the majesty of gigantic sea cliffs, untamed surf, numerous caves, off shore islets and islands, wind-beaten rock formations, and an abundance of sea birds and aquatic life before beginning their return journey.
