Glampers will have such a vast amount of activities to discover during their visit. For the creative, the Nelson Tasman area, in general, is famous for its artisans. There are countless side roads home to potters, painters, sculptors, soap makers, silversmiths, weavers of flax, willow, and wool, as well as candle makers, rug makers, and drum makers. This vast array of talent is sure to inspire, Glampers can join the Golden Bay arts trail and visit professional studios and galleries and meet the artists themselves.

The Bay has a myriad of walks to enjoy, from the property it is possible to walk the coast along to Collingwood and Takaka, (15km), or to The Mussel Inn which is three kilometers along the beach and coastal path. There are many hiking trails in the nearby national parks of Abel Tasman, Kahurangi, and of course the longer expedition of the Heaphy track. There are safari boat trips around the Farewell Spit, a sandbar which is a renowned bird sanctuary and the largest sandbar in the world. Pupu Springs is a short walk and is a stunning freshwater fall, the largest in New Zealand. An underwater observation window offers spectacular viewing of the incredibly clear waters and brightly colored plant life.

The adventurous can enjoy horse trekking amongst dramatic scenery, kayaking, and paddleboarding within the bay and Abel Tasman National Park. There is also a scenic cruise available from Totaranui through the Abel Tasman National Park through to Kaiteriteri.

There are charter scenic flights available nearby which provide spectacular views of the bay, and also operate a service for those doing the Heaphy track.

Just two kilometers away, glampers can rent sailing boats for a relaxing sail around the bay inlet waters. There are also opportunities for caving, mountain biking, rock climbing, fishing and golfing.
