Abel Tasman National Park Tours

Abel Tasman is New Zealand’s most visited national park and its no surprise given the unique combination of golden beaches and forest extending down to the water’s edge in a region enjoying generous sunshine hours. The Abel Tasman Coast Track winds its way around the waterfront – water taxis can drop walkers partway along the trail.

Accommodation for walkers ranges from campsites to lodges. Another popular way to explore the tranquil bays is by sea kayak. Overnight guided kayaking tours are hugely popular; paddle across sparkling water and camp at a secluded beach. Kayakers will see seals and birdlife,
and may even be lucky enough to spot dolphins or visiting Orca.

Gateways To Abel Tasman

Surrounding Abel Tasman National Park are several villages and small settlements that are perfect for stocking up on supplies or as a base for exploring the region.


The small town of Motueka, an easy drive northwest of Nelson, is the last major shopping outpost before Abel Tasman National Park. Quirky cafés and shops make it a good place to stop for longer than just stocking up at the supermarket.


Just over the hill from Motueka, Kaiteriteri is a lovely little village alongside a glorious sweep of golden-sand beach in a sheltered bay. A departure point for water taxis heading into the national park, this
is a hugely popular summertime destination for New Zealanders and overseas visitors alike.


A tiny outpost just beyond Kaiteriteri, Marahau is the last settlement before the national park.


The northern gateway to the national park is accessible by road from Takaka in Golden Bay.
