Glamping in the Tasman Region of New Zealand is ideal for guests looking to explore the natural beauty of the terrain. Guests can spend their days taking advantage of the beautiful shores of Waimea Inlet or the larger Tasman Bay and kayak, paddle board, sail, or fish the day away. They can also swim and take picnics at nearby beaches and rivers. For the extra-adventurous glampers, they can look forward to canyoning, caving, kite boarding, or sky diving.

Guests can take easy day trips to explore Abel Tasman, Kahurangi, and Nelson Lakes National Parks, or Mount Richmond Forest Park, and hike the trails, wander the coasts, and go sightseeing through the woodlands.

Tasman's Great Taste Trail, a popular biking trail, is the perfect afternoon adventure. The trail moves from the scenic coast to inland towns, past vineyards, orchards, and breweries. There are endless places along the trail for glampers to stop and taste the local cuisine.

A five-minute drive from the property, guests can explore the coastal town of Mapua, with delicious restaurants and cafes, interesting shops, and local art galleries.
