Nelson - Tasman Flights

Creative, youthful, and chic, Nelson is a lovely little coastal city with a lot to offer its visitors. Something of a cultural hub, this destination is home to such attractions as the Refinery Artspace, the Höglund Art Glass Gallery, and the South Street Gallery. If you would prefer a touch of natural beauty, this location also boasts the Miyazu Japanese Garden, Tahunanui Beach, and the Natureland zoo.
Although this city is a great place to visit, it is still relatively quiet in terms of tourism, and because of this, cheap flights to Nelson are easy to find all year long.

Best time to travel to Nelson

Peak Season:

From December through February, the climate in Nelson is beautifully warm and inviting. Flights to this area, though not overly expensive, can be pricier than normal. If you can find a good deal on flights and accommodation, this is a wonderful time to visit and explore Founders Park, do some mountain climbing at Kahurangi National Park, or browse the artistic wares at the Saturday Nelson Market.

Shoulder Season:

The months of March through May, and September through November make up the shoulder season in Nelson. These months can be a bit crisp, but are generally calm and pleasant. If you are feeling adventurous, this is a great time to brave the cool weather and skydive over Abel Tasman, or, if you prefer something more sedate, take a stroll through the streets to view such historic places as the Amber House and the Broadgreen House.

Off Season:

From July through August the weather can be very brisk, so many tourists avoid the city at this time. If you prefer the solitude that these months afford, this is an excellent time to take part in some of the indoor activities, such as touring the Christ Church Cathedral or visiting the Suter Art Gallery.
