 Abel Tasman Package 

The Abel Tasman Coastal Track is one of New Zealand's Great Walks. A well-formed trail contours the coast with frequent sea views and multiple stunning beaches along the way. A netword of water taxis operate scheduled services to the main beaches so you can enjoy the freedom of one-way hikes from 1-6 hours long. But, it is also a marine park, so adding sea kayaking or a boat-based day gives you close-up experiences with seals and birds plus access to beaches not on the walking trail.

Borrow bird books and binoculars and pack a day pack. Set off each morning for the next adventure. Return each evening to great food and a refreshing swim or soak in the hot tub.
