Abel Tasman Travel Guide

Abel Tasman is most well known for it's golden sandy beaches and some cool rocky outcrops. Unlike most national parks in New Zealand, Abel Tasman National Park has been modified and this is evidenced by a variety of vegetation cover which reflects the areas history of land clearance.

The forests are regenerating well however and there are places where a variety of plants can be found.

Our Kahu Kayak adventure in Abel Tasman National Park came as part of a full day tour with Abel Tasman Sailing Adventures which involved the morning kayaking, a half hour walk for your lunch and then an afternoon sailing, or sunbathing, aboard a catamaran. Sounds like a pretty sweet day, and it was.

Standing with my feet buried into the sparkling sand on a brisk August morning, I was excited for my very first Kayaking trip in the South Island of New Zealand. What a wonderful way to start my West Coast adventure, getting used to my surroundings in the majestic, untouched wilderness that is Abel Tasman National Park.

I thought I would start off the day with an activity not so strenuous on my poor arms and go for the "Split Apple Classic" which is a 4 hour round trip, paddling around the Kaiteriteri Coastline for about 5km.

Kayaking in the stunning Abel Tasman National Park is in pretty much all of the guidebooks you will ever read about New Zealand. There is good reason for this, Abel Tasman is a hidden paradise in New Zealand. A National Park with history, thick forest, pristine golden sand beaches, turquoise waters and some random but awesome wildlife.
