Overview

This premium 3 Day Abel Tasman Kayaks Classic Tour brings you a section of Abel Tasman National Park seldom visited by other travellers to New Zealand. Classic Tours such as this are the only trips that bring you to the northern reaches of the park, fully catered with delicious kai (food) so you can fully enjoy paddling the beautiful coastline of Totaranui all the way down to the golden sand beaches of Marahau.

The northern reaches of Abel Tasman National Park is rarely visited by other travellers, giving you the chance to fully immerse in the wide open space and natural wonders of this fantastic slice of paradise. Adventures range from paddling with seals to relaxing on several inviting beaches to encountering lagoons, islands and Maori “pa” (village sites). There is also so much to learn about the history and lore of the area from your guide. There’s plenty to do and so many opportunities to relax and discover that you’ll go back home filled with unforgettable memories from this truly amazing adventure.

Let us know if you want to turn this into a four-day journey by adding another day to experience the tranquillity of the far north. Walk from Totaranui to Separation Point, and soak up the peace and quiet as you pass through lush tropical native forest and deserted beaches. Meet your guide on Day Two to officially start the 3 Day Abel Tasman Kayaks Classic Tour. With this extended tour, you’ll have a chance to stay in what we consider as some of the best campsites in the park such as Anapai, Goat Bay or Totaranui. It’s vastly quieter up here, and this is your opportunity to experience the park in all its serene glory.

Previous experience is not necessary.
