What a beautiful location! We had the pleasure of hiking in and around Abel Tasman for a few days. I highly recommend the hike that takes 3 days. Our guide, Alex, was full of energy. She did a great job teaching us about the area and letting us explore. It is one of the most beautiful areas that we visited on the South Island. The beaches are pristine and you can swim if you’d like, it was cold when we were there. The lodges are welcoming and clean. The food was really good. It was great that there were also so hikers from New Zealand on our trip. I would recommend this trip and hike to anyone!

The whole three day walk with transfer transport, accommodation and food was excellent and was superbly organised by the company. Pre-visit planning was clear and accurate and we were so lucky with the weather as well - largely warm sunshine, blue skies and a cooling breeze when required. The boat trip to the start of our walk was a great way to see the coastline for the first time and after disembarking we were able to complete the first part of the trail in a small group led by Erwin who was, throughout the trip, interesting and knowledgeable as well as being very personable. We stayed at two lodges, ate hearty and tasty meals and enjoyed the days walking through the forest with regular glimpses of the sea and visits to largely crowd free beaches. Overall this was a super walk, in good company and within a wonderful environment.

From the very first moment this was such a worthwhile and well organised 3 days. From the pick up from our hotel, the sorting of necessary stuff, the picnic all ready for us the transfer to the park all was slick and efficient. We had lovely weather which helped of course but the organisation was such that we just relaxed and had a great time. Superb food, every meal. Great rooms and wonderful wonderful staff. Well done to everyone! A real highlight of our trip!!

We completed the 3 day walk of the Able Tasman National Park. Can't recommend it highly enough. The hiking company were very organized and very friendly and knowledgeable. The accommodation was a good standard. The walk was fantastic. DOC maintain the track to an excellent standard. We walked with day packs and our overnight bags were transported each day to the next nights accommodation. Would highly recommend.

We went on the 3 day kayak and walk tour. We actually tried to book the 5 day for but it was unfortunately booked for that week. The tour was very well organised from the beginning to the end. The guides were very helpful, informative and made you feel very safe. This was our very first kayaking experience and it's gonna be impossible to top it. The lodges were clean, comfortable and charming. The meals were excellent. Certainly would say a superb value for money. We are already thinking of going back to NZ and to include Wilson's 5 day adventure. This is exactly how a comfortable adventure should be!
