Nelson

Stunning natural landscapes, inspiring arts and delectable artisan produce await you in extraordinary Nelson. Three national parks within 90 minutes of the city and our main towns provide plenty of opportunities to enjoy our year-round sunny weather. Cycling, kayaking, skydiving, canyoning, and hiking are just some of the great outdoor activities on offer all year. Our artists and artisans have a wealth of creative work on display in studios and galleries and at our popular Nelson Saturday Market and Motueka Sunday Market.
