Hotels In Nelson

Beautiful golden tan fading fast? Spending a little too much time indoors? Hotels in Nelson have the cure for your vitamin D blues. Called the "Top of the South", it’s one of the sunniest cities in New Zealand. As the locals like to say, “Nelson is a lifestyle”, and it’s one you need to get in on ASAP.

Things to Do in Nelson

If you think you know museums, just wait until you see the crazy costumes at the World of Wearable Art Museum. Check out wearable wedding cakes (not edible, unfortunately) and more, then head to Trafalgar Park. No Kiwi holiday is complete without a visit to the local goal posts, and this is one of New Zealand’s most beautiful stadiums.

Accommodation in Nelson puts you near plenty of natural beauty, too; just head north to Abel Tasman National Park. It may be New Zealand’s smallest, but it’s got golden beaches, rugged granite cliffs and world-famous trails. This park is worth it even just for Cleopatra’s Pool, which has a natural, moss-lined waterslide, and Harwoods Hole, the deepest vertical shaft in New Zealand. Adrenaline-fuelled selfies: check!

Getting To & Around Nelson

Nelson Airport (NSN) is just 8 km south of the town centre, so you can easily cab it to your Nelson accommodation. From there, you can use taxis to get around or the bus service (not to mention your own two feet or a bike). But you’ll definitely want to check out lastminute.co.nz’s car hire deals in order to get to the parks. Coming from within South Island? The city is about 5 hours north of Christchurch.

New Zealand may be chockablock with outdoorsy fun, but no one does it quite like cloudless, vibrant Nelson. Get that carefree lifestyle started: Book your airfares and accommodation together with Nelson holiday packages from lastminute.co.nz and your only worry will be which national park to go to first.
