Abel Tasman Coast Track, Abel Tasman National Park

(4.8/5 based on 550+ reviews on the web)
Journey through some of the island's lushest coastal landscapes along Abel Tasman Coast Track, arguably the nation's most popular hiking route. Stretching 51 km (32 mi) through the surrounding Abel Tasman National Park, the trail features numerous side-branches, resting spots, and natural points of interest. Grab some comfortable walking shoes and hit the well-marked path, admiring secluded beaches, sweeping ocean views, and winding rivers along your way. Though it takes several days to travel the track in its entirety, you can get a solid taste of the area by opting for a smaller section of the path. Bear in mind during your trek that some portions of the trail are only crossable at low tide, so plan accordingly.

  • Two market days in the Park, one word, magnificent! In my opinion you must love hiking to fully appreciate the nature that surrounds us, I think not that the use of the shuttles to get only deposited on the beaches give the rendering of the beauty of the site.

  • We left bag backpack with family and have skirted this just sublime coastline. NS booked in campsites and have a night of rain stay in the huts, very friendly atmosphere. Should be independent so think about taking your stove and pellet water popotte, who is not drinking most of the time. Beautiful Qques mounted but overall the ballad is simple and so beautiful. Back at the parking lot in boats great taxi of course but a bit expensive $ 40 per pers.a do vs will take full eyes!

  • It was good to get out and move around, and the trail was beautiful coming out to beach views here and there, and the ocean, and... Lots of uphill, downhill - if you're not used to that sort of thing.
