Abel Tasman National Park is said to be one of the most stunning areas in all of New Zealand's South Island. This wilderness reserve is filled with bays, islands, beautiful ocean, golden beaches and just a stone's throw away from Nelson - this natural beauty spot is not to be missed.
Head to the Tonga Island Marine Reserve for a glimpse at the incredible coastal landscape and wild New Zealand fur seals, penguins, and Bottlenose dolphins. If you're looking for something more active, stroll along the Abel Tasman Coast Track - an extensive winding track that stretches between Marahau in the south and Wainui in the north. There are also extensive Kayak tours and hires through the interior waterways to experience hidden coves and bays or opt for a skydive for the best views in town.
Backpackers World offers a range of amazing ways to explore this glistening paradise from kayaking and hiking tours to catamaran sailing trips. Trust us, you will not be disappointed by this incredible region.
