Nelson is the oldest city on New Zealand’s South Island, established by European settlers in 1841. The region is a vibrant arts and culture district, and boasts some of the best biking trails in the world. Nelson has some awesome expansive beaches and a sheltered natural harbour. The area is mostly mountains, which outdoor activities a particular thrill. Nelson also features caves and caverns that are some of the deepest and most popular in the Southern Hemisphere. The climate is quite comfortable thanks to its ocean borders - summers are warm and winters mild, making this a desirable vacation spot all year long. Winter does bring its fair share of stores, but with the amount of indoor entertainment options and cultural points of interest, there is plenty of reason to visit during the winter months. From culinary attractions to exciting recreation opportunities, Nelson is a haven for winter adventurers looking for something a little off the beaten path. There’s no better way to see Nelson in the winter time than traveling in the comfort a motorhome. Hire a campervan with Mighway, and let the journey unfold!
