Let Abel Tasman Guides lead you through your personal journey of discovery in this iconic part of New Zealand. The golden sands, the clear blue water, the myriad of greens in the forest create what many people say is the “picture of perfection.”

This is The Abel Tasman National Park.

Abel Tasman Guides are here to show, assist and interpret for you all aspects of the magic that goes to make up your Abel Tasman walking experience. We love the slow way – walking either on unguided or guided trips, and can make just about anything happen for you. Our focus is on the Abel Tasman Coastal Track where we are concession holders for any type of walking trips there. It’s fair to say we know it like the back of our hand, and we love to share it with others.

Taking you on these adventures is Wally Bruce, a pioneer adventure tourism operator and owner of Abel Tasman Guides.

Wally’s enthusiasm for New Zealand’s unique natural history, landforms, birdlife, plants, trees and people is unbounding. He takes pride in his organisation and people have been saying for well over 30 years he is a joy to spend time exploring with.

We do complete the picture and organise your pre and post trip accommodation (if required) and other activities within the area… Things like sea kayaking, visits to seal colonies, additional water transport, New Zealand itinerary advice and the like.

So feel free to ask us anything, anytime


We had a fabulous time – I will certainly recommend this walk to all our friends
Steve & Kim
