Including Nelson’s Eastern Mountains, D’Urville Island & Marlborough Sounds
After introductions with your pilot and yoga instructor, board your private helicopter and track East into the mountain ranges that divide Tasman Bay and the Marlborough region. Nelson’s Eastern Ranges are at the Northern tip of the Southern Alps (main divide) and descend to form the Marlborough Sounds. Your first stop lands you at a private mountain location, where your yoga instructor will guide you through relaxation and mindfulness exercises.
Once you are relaxed and ready to leave the mountains we will fly northwest to D’Urville Island -located on the western edge of the Marlborough Sounds, for a landing on a private beach. D’Urville Island is New Zealand’s 9th largest island and is ruggedly beautiful with only around 50 permanent residents. Here your yoga instructor will take you through a private and tailored yoga session, for approx. 1 hour. Enjoy the natural sounds of the waves and winds as they lap the shores taking you to another dimension.
Following your yoga session, mindfully soak up the natural beauty while enjoying a leisurely gourmet picnic lunch on the beach. Our lunches can be tailored to suit all dietary requests, and we will focus on healthy and nutritious food options sourced from our region.
Once refreshed board the helicopter once again for your flight home with views of the Tasman Bay coastline and the Nelson region.
This special day will recharge your body, mind and spirit, peacefully re-connecting you to the natural beauty of this land.
