Activities on and around the island

Discover pure nature

To the activities photo galleryThere are so many possibilities on Forsyth Island: boat tours with an experienced skipper, fishing excursions (good catch guaranteed in these rich fishing grounds), kayaking - the waters around the island are clear as crystal. You can either watch dolphins or hike on the numerous island trails: 50 km of walking trails lead around the 750 hectare island and wind themselves up onto the three peaks of nearly 400 m. The paths are surrounded by magnificent flora and fauna with neither poisonous animals nor plants - and definitely without mosquitoes.

The caretakers will be happy to drive you up to the most beautiful BBQ places in the island jeep. Interested guests are also welcome to experience the farming business with cashmere goats and sheep.

We suggest a relaxing week on Forsyth Island and then a round trip through New Zealand to discover its many facets. It is not without reason that New Zealand's landscapes served as scenery for the movie trilogy "Lord of the Rings".

Where else could you climb a glacier and walk through rain forest on the same day? Or go skiing on a volcano in the morning and take a bath in warm open-air thermal springs in the evening? And where else could you find paradise-like beaches just next to magnificent mountain ranges?

Discover the unique national parks, experience the culture of the Maori (New Zealand's native people) and enjoy the cultural diversity of the cities - the capital, Wellington, is worth a visit.

The Abel Tasman Park and the ski resort in Nelson Lakes are very close. For whale watching, it is best to visit Kaikoura at a distance of 160 km (early booking is recommended). We are happy to assist you when planning your round trip.
