The climate is pleasantly mild, the coastal forests lush and green, and the beaches golden. Favoured activities here are tramping (hiking), kayaking, camping and mountain biking. It’s a space to enjoy getting physical – at your own pace.
The most popular attraction in the area is the Abel Tasman Coast Track, an easy walk of 60km that you should schedule 3 – 5 days to complete. It’s essential to book or you might be without a campsite.
Scenic New Zealand will get you there on a scheduled run or a chartered journey with your group. Check out our scheduled Abel Tasman coach travel timetable and book your ride here. Call us direct to discuss a charter coach to get your group to the Abel Tasman region.
The Nelson Tasman region hosts events of all types, for locals and visitors. There are celebrations of local wine, beer and food, challenging physical endurance events, art and craft events, agricultural shows, exhibitions and music festivals. Guess what: you’re invited!
