A pre-match jaunt – Nelson Lakes

Lake Rotoiti is easily reached from Nelson by following State Highway 6 south to State Highway 63 where you turn right to reach the village of St Arnaud and Lake Rotoiti.
Dropkick the hangover – Kayaking on the Abel Tasman Coast
For people who haven’t kayaked before, a guided trip is recommended. If you are renting a kayak or going on a guided trip, discuss your kayak trip with your chosen kayak operator before booking huts or campsites. For independent kayak rentals, a minimum of two people and previous sea-kayaking experience are essential.
