Things to know before you visit Abel Tasman Track
Hiking is not the only thing you will do when you visit the Abel Tasman track. You can explore the national park on a kayak, a boat, from the sky by diving, a bike, or by canyoning. The Abel Tasman track journey starts from Marahau and ends either at Totaranui or Wainui Bay. You can walk 60km and then return on a water taxi. The journey can be done the other way round too, but people stay an extra night at Totaranui to explore more beaches. You have many options of accommodation throughout your trip which you need to book in advance. December to February is the hottest time to visit the Abel Tasman track, but if you wish to visit some other time during the quiet, select the low tide time. Whether you are a local or a foreigner, Abel Tasman Track should be on everyone’s bucket list.
