Kayak the sheltered southern coast & walk the isolated northern beaches. This is the ultimate combination of relaxation and adventure. Explore the world famous Abel Tasman Coast Track in two authentic ways! Classed as one of 'New Zealand's Great Walks
', the Abel Tasman Coast Track follows the coastline through lush native bush, over limestone cliffs and along golden sandy beaches.
At the very top of the South Island there is the glittering Abel Tasman National Park. Abel Tasman Coast Track is the perfect way to explore the beauty of the Park. The Abel Tasman National Park is New Zealand's only coastal national park. Inviting sandy beaches fill the spaces between trees and tide line. Crystal clear streams tumble down mossy valleys to join the ocean. Granite and marble formations fringe the headlands, which are cloaked in regenerating native forest. Walking and kayaking along the Abel Tasman Coast Track, you will soon agree that this is a coastal paradise and perfect place for relaxation and adventure.
Native wildlife is an essential part of your walking and kayaking trip. Many animal species found along the Abel Tasman Coast Track are unique to this part of New Zealand. Tui and bellbird song fills the forest; shags (cormorants), gannets and little blue penguins dive for their dinner; fur seals lounge on the rocks around the edge of Tonga Island.
Farewell your animal friends on the track, return to your beachfront lodges and enjoy a hot shower. They are the only lodge accommodation right on the beach in the heart of Abel Tasman National Park. Here, you enjoy a wilderness experience without giving up modern conveniences. Over a fine 3-course dinner, swap stories with fellow walkers, be lulled to sleep by the sound of waves lapping golden sands.
With no road access in the Abel Tasman National Park, every trip is a journey. Be part of a small group, guided by experienced local guides, you can discover the best of Abel Tasman National Park in comfort, with more time for you to relax or immerse in the nature.
The walk & kayak trip is all inclusive with fine food prepared for you. You don’t need to carry heavy packs during your walk and kayak as we transport all your luggage.
