Nelson & Abel Tasman Backpackers & Hostels

Nelson isn’t just a destination – it’s a way of life! Located at the top north-west of the South Island, it benefits from the most sunshine days anywhere in NZ. It also boasts about every scenery possible from un-spoilt golden beaches, lush native forests and rugged mountains. One of the must do activities in the area is to walk the Abel Tasman Track which takes 3-5 days or visit the Nelson Arts Festival.
