4 Day Abel Tasman Adventure

4 Day Abel Tasman Adventure

With beautiful golden beaches, blue-green sea, bush walks and sea kayaking you won't want to leave the stunning Abel Tasman National Park.

TOUR OVERVIEW
Marahau is located about an hour’s drive from Nelson and is a great base to explore the Abel Tasman National Park with its numerous marine, wildlife and nature based activities.

Drive the short distance from Marahau to Kaiteriteri Beach, the starting point for your Swing Bridge, Bush and Beach cruise and walk. Cruise into the heart of Abel Tasman National Park, pausing at Anchorage to view your destination. Continue to Medlands Beach where you disembark. Walk the most varied section of the Abel Tasman Coastal Track, around the spectacular Torrent Bay estuary to the golden sands of Anchorage Beach.

The track weaves through sunny groves of Manuka and fern between breathtaking views of the granite coast and lush gullies of mature forest, to reach tranquil forest pools (maximum elevation 105 metres/340 ft). Cross the rushing Falls River by an impressive swing bridge. At Anchorage rejoin your boat & cruise back to Kaiteriteri arriving at 5.45pm.

Your half-day guided kayak tour paddling between Marahau and Watering Cove (approximately three hours) takes you through the safe, sheltered and scenic southern reaches of the Abel Tasman. Home to more than a dozen beautiful golden beaches, two islands, several sea caves, reefs and tidal lagoons, this area a delight to sea kayak. After your kayak take an easy unguided walk (approx three hours) through native fern gullies and bush clad headlands back to Marahau and your accommodation.

Your stay is at the Ocean View Chalets in Marahau at the southern entrance to the Abel Tasman National Park. These beautiful, natural timber chalets are set on an elevated position on a 50 acre farmlet in a peaceful bush setting with panoramic sea views. Each chalet provides you with self-contained accommodation but is located close to the local restaurants and cafes in Marahau.
