Abel Tasman Hike Guide

The Abel Tasman is arguably New Zealand's finest national park and a hike through it is a must for any visit to New Zealand.

Abel Tasman Hike Guide

The Abel Tasman Hike is a spectacular track that takes in views of wonderful bush combined with stunning turquoise waters and golden beaches.

On a trip with Flying Kiwi New Zealand Tours you get plenty of time to explore the area. There is a full day here to either do a return hike along the track or a walk and water taxi combination. 

In addition you can combine kayak, sail and traditional waka options with walks in some of the finest parts of the park.

Some of the French names left by d'Urville and his crew Adele, Simonet and Torrent add character to parts of this trek and there is also a causeway crossing the estuary. On the far side the track passes through open country to Tinline Bay.

The track rounds Guilbert Point to Apple Tree Bay then passes through beech forest with large kanuka trees. After Yellow Point it turns inland, winding in and out of several little gullies before emerging in open country overlooking Torrent Bay and the coast and islands to the north.

Descend to Anchorage Bay for lunch and return walk or continue on to Bark Bay.
