Enjoy a gourmet picnic on the remotely beautiful, wild West Coast.
Tracking 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.
Wharariki Beach Horse Trek optional add-on
Add 2 hours+ to the total tour time.
If you are looking for more of a hands-on adventure, why not add a spectacular horse trekking experience that takes you climbing above the beach and crossing over the lush green hills of the Puponga Farm Park. A great opportunity to explore one of our most beautiful coastal landscapes on horseback. Recommended for children over the age of 10 years.
