Location

Abel Tasman is one of New Zealand's beautiful coastal regions and with this multi-day hike, you'll be able to explore it and take in some of the best sights over 5-days.

Day one begins with the journey from Nelson to Awaroa. The first leg is a coach ride to Kaiteriteri where you'll board a comfortable boat to cruise along the National park's coastline for 1.5 hours. With viewing decks for you to take in the views with a drink in hand from the onboard cafe. Once you've docked in Totaranui, you'll walk through mature beech and rata forests, secluded beaches and through the inlet before arriving at your home for the night, Meadowbank Homestead.

Day two, the adventures continue - or the relaxation depending on your mood - as your guide tailoring the day's activities to suit you. You can explore the Awaroa Estuary on foot or by kayak, visit early European and pre-European historical sites, take it easy and relax on the beautiful beach or relax around the Homestead's grounds. No matter which way you choose to spend your day, you'll be treated to breakfast, morning and afternoon tea, lunch and dinner.

Come day three you'll travel from Awaroa to Torrent Bay either by foot on the 17-kilometre trail or by boat, which can be arranged by your guide. If hiking, you'll take in a collection of views ranging from secluded, golden beaches to luscious green forest. Lunch is to be enjoyed at Bark Bay where you'll also have the option to swim or explore. Those cruising can choose to meet the hiking group at the lunch spot before continuing on to the end destination for the day. Today's journey concludes at Torrent Bay Lodge on the beach where you'll enjoy a delicious dinner.

On day four you'll spend the day exploring Torrent Bay however you please. You'll have the choice of walking through the forest and up to Falls River's waterfalls, canoeing around the estuary to Cleopatra's Pool, walking along Anchorage Beach and Te Pukatea Cove to visit historic Maori sites at Pitt Head or simply relaxing on the beach.

One the final day of this tour you'll travel from Torrent Bay to Moteuka to conclude this incredible journey. Beginning with breakfast, you'll then walk along the easiest section of the rail while taking in beautiful views of the Tasman Bay region. Lunch is again included and enjoyed on a sheltered beach with views stretching out to the Astrolabe Roadstead islands before meeting your driver to journey back to Motueka or Nelson. Again, if you don't want to walk the whole way you can join the cruise boat at Torrent Bay, Anchorage or Apple Tree Bay to cruise back to Kaiteriteri.
