Get in touch with us to make an individual booking! We only schedule very few trips, but might be able to get you in at a time that suits you. Learn to shoot the longbow and practise your new skill in a unique forest archery range. There won't be a large group so you get individual training and all my knowledge. You get your own longbow and arrows for the day and I start you of on your path to become an instinctive archer, just like Robin Hood, or Legolas (being in New Zealand after all). After initial practise on our lawn archery range we will go for a walk and explore the bush. Hunting for fantasy and game archery targets along the way. You will shoot uphill and downhill. Kneeling and standing. And you never know what next target might be around the corner. Maybe there is even a dragon? Bring some sturdy shoes and make sure you're fit and adventurous enough to walk 2 km through a pristine native New Zealand bush and cross Nelson's cleanest stream using boulder stepstones and a rope handrail only.
Christine & Markus
17 years ago I woke up and decided to become an archer. But not like you have seen on the Olympics, more like Robin Hood. Ever since then I have been a longbow archer. I have explored the old skills of traditional archery in depth, by making my own wooden bows and arrows. I am a certified NZFAA archery coach and recently won a silver medal at the New Zealand National 3D archery tournament. I have build an archery club from the ground up and was an organizing member of the biggest annual gathering of traditional archers in my home country in Germany.
All required archery gear
Our archery range is on the Cable Bay Adventure Park. We will explore a rare untouched and pristine native forest with giant Maitai Trees and some of the tallest silver ferns in the region. You will also get to cross Nelson's cleanest stream. All while shooting bow and arrow. A cafe is on site so you can fuel up afterwards. Further down the road is Nelson's hidden gem - the Cable Bay beach. Make a day out of it, Cable Bay is worth a visit!
最多可供6位年滿10歲的旅人參加。 We'll be active most of the time and there are very few options to sit down.
你需要提供一張與你身份證明文件上的相片相符之相片。 以便Airbnb確認是次體驗的參加者。 你只需進行此步驟一次。

No previous archery experience is required. Training for all levels will be provided. Wear good sturdy shoes, we will walk 2 km and cross an unbridged stream. If the weather is bad we need to cancel.
