Jan 30, 2024

National Geographic has praised NZ’s Abel Tasman National Park – and if you want to know what all the fuss is about join us on either our 4-day Best of Abel Tasman Coast Track or 6-day Best of the Queen Charlotte and Abel Tasman Tracks pack-free guided walks.

“Not every Great Walk involves summiting passes,” says the article. “One of New Zealand’s star trails is the 60km Abel Tasman Coast Track, whose gentle paths always lead back to coastal viewpoints and beaches for refreshing dips.”

On the walk the writer says he be: “Looking out from this sea-skirting Great Walk for dusky dolphins, fur seals, little blue penguins and wekas — a ground-dwelling bird infamous for raiding camp tents in search of snacks!”


Located at the top of the South Island, the spectacular Abel Tasman National Park, New Zealand’s smallest and most visited National Park is ready for exploring.

Our superb 4-day walk showcases the best of the Abel Tasman Coast Track through landscapes of rich native forests, beautiful beaches and idyllic inlets.


By private boat, we reach the best sections of the trail each day, whilst at night we stay at the secluded Awaroa Lodge offering magnificent views, stunning local produce and superb New Zealand wines.

Our 6-day walk combines the Queen Charlotte and Abel Tasman Tracks and each region is unique in its own way – from the ancient beech forests and fern-fringed coves of Queen Charlotte to the spectacular beaches and rich forests of Abel Tasman.

Add to this two beautiful lodges, amazing award-winning wines and local produce and you have the perfect combination for a sensational walking holiday.
