About the journey
A trip from the airport in Christchurch to Nelson is likely to take at least five or six hours and will see drivers covering a distance of just over 250 miles. This may not be the longest road trip that travellers can take during their time in New Zealand, however this route is not short on great places to stop off at and enjoy the sights. The town of Hanmer Springs situated in the Southern Alps is a tranquil retreat for those who love winter sports and relaxation. For any keen fisherman planning to take this route, Maruia Springs offers some of the world’s best trout fishing waters.
