Countryside & Coast
This private tour allows you to experience two stunning environments in one day.
Start the day with a leisurely bike ride in Motueka Valley (beside Kahurangi National Park), before joining your luxury Abel Tasman Charters boat, to explore the stunning coastline of the Abel Tasman National Park.
Enjoy the leisurely bike ride in the Motueka Valley. Follow the majestic Motueka river and soak up the tranquility of the countryside. The route can be between 10- 30kms (tailored to your enjoyment) and there is time to stop off along the way to watch the flow of the river and listen to the abundant birdsong.
