A German man has been rescued from the Mount Richmond Forest Park near Nelson after becoming unwell while tramping.

The man was tramping south along the Te Araroa Trail towards the Red Hills area when he became unwell on Saturday afternoon, says the Nelson Marlborough Rescue Helicopter.

He spent the night at Tarn Hut and attempted to continue tramping on Sunday morning but was still unwell and returned to the hut and activated his emergency locator beacon.

The rescue helicopter flew him out to Nelson on Sunday.
