Kaiteriteri is an easy drive from Nelson, which takes approximately 50 minutes.
Nelson has New Zealand's busiest regional airport with regular flights from around the country - Wellington is a 30-minute flight, Christchurch is a 55-minute flight. With a range of car hire companies at the airport, you can fly and drive to Kaiteriteri after work on a Friday and wake up in our beachside paradise on Saturday morning.
If you want to travel by car from Christchurch and explore the top of the South Island, the routes through the Lewis Pass, or around the coast through Kaikoura, or across Arthurs Pass and up the West Coast, are amongst New Zealand's finest road trips.
As a lot of our guests are campers you'll find getting here with your motorhome or caravan straightforward too - our access roads are well maintained and built with larger holiday vehicles in mind.
