Getting there

  • Planes

    Catch international flights (direct from parts of Asia, with stops from other destinations) to Nelson, Blenheim, Christchurch, or Wellington.
  • Automobiles

    Renting a car is a breeze; there are hire locations at airports and in towns and, although driving may take a while, it’s fairly easy going.
