Every multi-day walk should be launched with a powerboat ride! The 20 min ride across Lake Rotoiti begins our 7 day tramp on the Travers-Sabine Circuit in Nelson Lakes National Park (NP).
The 80km Travers-Sabine circuit is the ideal way to see the rivers, lakes, beech forests and high mountain country of the Nelson Lakes NP. Located 90 min from Nelson, the Nelson Lakes NP formed in 1956, now has over 15 huts and covers over 102,000 ha. An earthquake 6 days prior to our journey, reminds us this National Park also sits on a major fault line.
