KAHURANGI WILDERNESS ONE DAY TRIP
New Zealand's inaccessible hinterland

Rugged landscape of Kahurangi National Park viewed from Mount Owen

 

There are parts of New Zealand that are still true wilderness and on this tour we fly you into the heart of Kahurangi National Park. We leave early in the morning to allow plenty of time to photograph stunning mountain locations in morning light. We will have plenty of time to photograph otherworldly limestone features before flying back to Nelson. A wonderful day tour for those interested in the raw beauty of New Zealand and one that makes you realise how very wild this young country still is. The landscape photographer will find endless subjects here - and patience will be rewarded with great shots that will remind you forever of this very special trip.

Allow 5 - 6 hours for this tour with an early departure from Nelson. Outdoor clothing and sturdy shoes are essential for this trip. Bring an extra layer of warm clothes and be prepared for the sun as well.
