To start your Abel Tasman one-day track hiking adventure, we will collect you from your accommodation in Nelson in the morning.
Upon pick-up, you’ll be introduced to your hiking guide. Then, we will head towards the pretty coastal town of Marahau, located in the Tasman District of New Zealand’s South Island, to catch a water taxi to Anchorage or Torrent Bay.
Ride the water taxi and take a scenic route towards Anchorage, a beautiful bay in the Abel Tasman Track that is popular for its magnificent waters, large camping area, scenic cruise, and exciting kayaking activities.
Pass by the spectacular tidal estuary on your water taxi ride and Torrent Bay, a hidden trail paradise with its clear waters and calming tidal rhythm.
