The Abel Tasman National Park is situated at the top of the South Island, separating Golden Bay and Tasman Bay. At an area of 22,530 hectares or 225 sq km, the Abel Tasman is the smallest of New Zealand's 10 national parks.
The cool, pristine waters that fringe the national park are kayaking heaven! With golden sandy beaches, interesting geological formations along the shoreline, beautiful nature and a bounty of animals including NZ Fur Seals and little Blue Penguins - the Abel Tasman is a prime vacation spot for visitors from around the globe.
The best way to explore the Abel Tasman is by taking a guided kayaking tour. Your guide will not only cook you up a delicious meal, but they also impart interesting facts about the area and take you places where few have been before.
