A 26-year-old Danish woman has been winched from dense bush in the Marlborough Sounds after she fell and injured herself.

The accident happened on the side of Onahau Peak on Saturday afternoon, the Nelson Marlborough Rescue Helicopter says.

The woman was part of an organised party from Anakiwa who were descending from the peak when the incident happened.

She was rescued from steep terrain below the summit and was taken to Wairau Hospital.
