DEPARTURE TIME & LOCATION:
Helicopters Nelson Base
This is the perfect way to experience the Marlborough Sounds, when based in the Nelson area
The tour allows you to view the Sounds and its breathtaking beauty by air, then soak up the tranquility of the landscape with a bike ride, followed by lunch at a local lodge. Fly to Kenepuru Sound and along the way, take in the views, with a mountain top landing in the Mt Richmond Forest Park (weather permitting). Continue to a quiet location where you and your cycle guide start the cycle route. A carefully selected part of Kenepuru Sound provides a 15km section of an undulating backroad with a mix of sealed and unsealed surfaces. Along the way there are changing vistas around every corner to enjoy.
This is a civilised adventure, so at the end of our cycle route we transfer to Lochmara Lodge for lunch. Savour locally sourced ingredients and Marlborough wine. Relax at the lodge’s waterfront location before your return flight to Nelson.
