Walk, kayak or boat with an insider perspective

Super well organised, perfectly located and appointed accommodation and the best guides each with their personal insights and connections. We had never been on an organised tour let alone hike or kayak trip so were a bit unsure but It could not have been a better experience. Each day we had flexible itinerary options, food and luggage were taken care of and all we had to do was enjoy the stunning environment. The walking and kayaking was easy enough - we certainly weren’t super fit but turned out we were fit enough. The 5 day option is a great itinerary, two nights in each of the lodges, with plenty of time to actively enjoy or hang out.

Top 10 on my list!

A great way to see this beautiful National Park... our guides were knowledgeable, safety conscious, willing to make everyone’s journey unique and above all happy and friendly. The accomodation complemented the trip with sustainability a priority. The food abundant and way too good to resist. Lots of surprises on our adventure along with beautiful scenery and wild life... a top 10 on my list!

Another great reason why to live in NZ

Great trip, great guides and support staff to let us enjoy just another part of our beautiful country. We did the 4-night/5-day trip and even though there was 1 day of solid rain, that wasn't too much of a problem as, there were welcome hot showers and drying facilities at the days end. Well formed tracks and terrain very manageable... we had a 79yr old in our group!!! Easy to see why it rates so well.

The guides were very helpful and professional

The staff on the Abel Tasman were fantastic, their professionalism was superb. Thank you again for all your help in making our trip just wonderful. The accommodation in Nelson was superb too. The guides were very helpful and professional too. Can't speak more highly of them.

It is beautiful everywhere

The whole trip was so well organised and we were looked after very well. The guides were lovely, the accommodation was great and my gluten free needs were well taken care of. It is beautiful everywhere, the weather is better than ours and you have so much space in which to relax.
