Abel Tasman National Park
Pristine blue water, immaculate white sand, and a thick, temperate rainforest make Abel Tasman National Park a natural jewel on the northern coast of Tasmania's South Island. The country's smallest national park makes up for its size with a plethora of outdoor activities, which include hiking and some of the best sea kayaking in New Zealand. Penguins, petrels, herons, wild pigs, and deer call the park home, as do several seal colonies living on the rocks just off the coast. For many visitors, an Abel Tasman National Park holiday presents the perfect opportunity to grab some camping gear and spend several nights sleeping under the stars. With our custom trip planner, New Zealand vacations can be built around trips to Abel Tasman National Park and other destinations in New Zealand.
