Abel Tasman Track – 3 Day Classic Freedom walk
If you want to walk the Abel Tasman Track, this 3 day walking package gives you the freedom to enjoy the track at your own pace. We supply you with all the information you need to get the most out of your unguided Abel Tasman walking experience. It’s easy to see why this is our most popular length of stay in the Abel Tasman National Park.
This independent approach to your journey through the stunning park allows time to swim and get the sand between your toes as well as accomplish some incredible hiking, all the while staying in holiday accommodation best suited to you.
As there are areas on the Abel Tasman Coastal Track that can only be crossed at low tide, each walk has a customised itinerary that we create especially for your specific trip. All the personal itineraries we create make for a seamless Abel Tasman experience with all the myriad of logistics taken care of, as well as your individual desires! We will supply you with detailed trip notes, including tide times, maps and advice about what to bring with you and when to walk etc.
