Let the tide be your guide as you trek secluded coves on Tasman Bay
Follow the iconic Coast Track of Abel Tasman National Park on this 5-day walking tour through New Zealand’s unspoiled wilderness. Explore pristine bays with golden-sand beaches and native forests of kanuka and manuka trees as you head from the rural village of Marahau to the remote paradise of Awaroa. This South Island coastal hiking adventure includes a bit of luxe and a lot of local expertise, with nights in cosy cabins, daily transportation to the trek via water taxis, and an in-the-know leader to help you navigate the trails and the tides.
Spend three full days exploring the picturesque Abel Tasman National Park, discovering golden-sand beaches and secluded bays only accessible by boat or on foot.
Experience Abel Tasman’s most classic hike without lugging all your stuff, thanks to daily water taxis from your accommodations to the trail start points.
Kick up your weary walking feet at the end of each day with stays in cosy cabins and lodges right inside the park grounds.
Cross the challenging Awaroa Inlet and navigate the fast-changing tide under the expert guidance of a local leader.
