Abel Tasman
The coastal track and other walks Classed as one of New Zealand's 'Great Walks', the Abel Tasman's Coastal Track takes between 3 and 5 days to complete. It climbs around headlands and through native forest to a series of beautiful beaches. The track is walkable at any time of the year, but crowded in summer. For a different view of the park, there are inland tracks that lead up to the dramatic karst landscape of Takaka Hill. Sea kayaking A number of kayaking companies run guided tours from Marahau and Kaiteriteri. If you'd rather be independent, you can rent kayaks and stay at campsites, huts or lodges within the park - just as you would if you were hiking. Day trips For those with only a day to see the park, water taxi companies can provide a personalised mix of sightseeing by boat and track walking. Enquire at Marahau or Kaiteriteri.
