Beaches and Bush

 For those with the tightest travel schedules. Be whisked away from your base in Nelson, and spend the day getting a taste for what makes the Abel Tasman Coastal Track one of New Zealand’s greatest treasures. 

Approx. 4 hours walking – 12.4km 

We’ll meet at your Nelson accommodation, and drive out to Marahau to collect our water taxi to Anchorage/Torrent Bay. This gets us straight to the heart of the Abel Tasman National Park and lets us explore this portion of the park at our own pace as we meander back to Marahau. Discover regenerating native  forest, magnificent views, and spend time relaxing on one of the many golden beaches – including our favourite, Apple Tree Bay. Hear some of the plentiful stories of Maori and early European history from your knowledgeable local guide. After our relaxing and stimulating day we drop you off at your hotel in the evening.
