Abel Tasman National Park Day Walks 

The finest coastal track in New Zealand, Abel Tasman might be the country’s smallest National Park but it boasts spectacular golden beaches, wildlife, and great weather all year round making it an amazing hiking spot. The park’s hiking trail is also one of New Zealand’s Great Walks. Those who do not have the luxury of time to do a multi-day walk, these short Abel Tasman National Park day walks are a great alternative.

Cruise and Walk

If you want a more relaxed option, go on a cruise trip. The boats have great views on both upper and lower decks and have comfortable seats. Commentary will be given on board while you enjoy a drink or a light snack. Go on shore, stretch your legs, and take photographs before boarding going back to your boat.

Kayak and Walk

Another way to explore Abel Tasman National park is through kayaking. Combine this fun activity with hiking. Paddle past sea caves and pristine beaches and appreciate the crystal clear waters of the park from your kayak. Get up close and personal and walk along the tracks, taking advantage of the beautiful scenery.

Sail and Walk

Sail along the coastlines, islands, and bays. Leave your boat and take your time walking leisurely on beautiful sandy beaches, stopping by magnificent lookouts.
