Wellington - Wellington
total time: 8 days
This trip starts in Wellington - New Zealand’s capital city. After spending the day exploring Wellington, your clients will cross the Cook Strait and travel to sunny Nelson. Next they will journey to Marahau – the gateway to Abel Tasman National Park and home of the Abel Tasman Coast Track, this 54.4km track is one of New Zealand's Great Walks. After completing the multi-day Abel Tasman Coast Track your clients will then travel back to Nelson and fly home from Wellington or Christchurch.
To ensure your clients are well rested after their flight, we recommend they stay a night or two in their arrival city before collecting a rental vehicle. Driving in a new country can be challenging and will be even worse if the driver is tired. The driver should always be well rested, take regular breaks during the journey and plan to drive for only 1-2 hours at a time.
New Zealand has unique road rules and driving conditions that your clients may not be used to. For a safe and enjoyable journey make sure your clients know where to find information on New Zealand’s road rules before they depart for their holiday.
