Our adventure on the north end of the South Island started with some sea kayaking around the Abel Tasman National Park. We were part of a small tour. Our trip started with a water taxi to our starting destination.
We then loaded up our kayaks and pushed off.
We then paddled south along the coast. We saw more animals, interesting rock formations and paddled into lagoons.
Lagoon Penguins Penguins Taylor did most of the paddling. 🙂 I was busy taking pictures! Super Paddler!
Next on our agenda for the next few days, we headed to wineries. We visited wineries in the Nelson and Marlborough wine regions. We visited a bunch more wineries, had excellent meals, relaxed and purchased some bottles to bring back to Singapore. Here are the wineries we visited: Nueforf Vineyards, Rimu Grove, Waimea Estates, Spy Valley, Clos Henri, Seresin Estate, Gibson, Huia, Hunter’s, Hans Herzog, Cloudy Bay, and there may have been a few others but I’ve already forgotten!
The ends the highlights of our New Zealand trip! All together we drove about 30,000km in about 11 days. Here’s a general map of how we drove. Follow the arrows!Next week’s post, the botanical gardens with special visitors!
