Meet your driver in the morning in either Motueka or Nelson and head along the coastline to Kaiteriteri. Enjoy the wonderful beach and views over the bay.

Tea, coffee and snacks are available on board.

Enjoy a moment on the stunning beach in Totaranui - maybe even a swim - before your driver meets you again to take you to your next destination. You will be picked up by your driver and you will be blown away by the 20-minute drive to stunning bush with the option for a short walk.

After the walk to a lookout, drive about 10 minutes to Takaka for a break. Takaka is a colourful interesting lifestyle town with wonderful lunch stop options, interesting shops and locals. 3km out of Takaka there is the well-known Waikoropupu Springs, known for the clarity of the water and the volume of water discharged. The springs are spiritually significant to the Maori people.

The tour ends with a scenic drive over Takaka Hill with stunning views over Abel Tasman and Golden Bay before heading back to Motueka and Nelson. You will return to Motueka at about 4.30pm and Nelson at about 5.30pm.
