The scenery during this hike was absolutely spectacular. I was lucky to have beautiful weather as well but the scenery was like nothing I have ever seen. Loved the actual walk as well. Very well marked and easy to follow. Met some wonderful people along the way.

I grew up in Nelson, camping at Totaranui, so always wanted to do this track as I love the area. The track is AMAZING. The actual walk is pretty easy, a few hills but nothing daunting and the track is wide and well kept. Everywhere there are gorgeous views of golden beaches & blue sea. Most beaches are accessible from the track so you can enjoy a swim or two along the way! I did the 3 day Glamping option with Abel Tasman Guides, where they transport your luggage and provide all the meals-splendid! The track is well used as a lot of people get a water taxi to a particular Bay then walk to the next Bay & taxi out. This means its a busy track but its so cool that its so accessible to so people of all abilities.

After a tough Canadian winter I was lucky enough to get away with some friends for a trip to NZ. With work full throttle my prep time for the trip was just about zero including researching and prepping for a two day tramp in Abel Tasman. Smart stuff we did: packed super light including food. Not so smart was forgoing a small sleeping bag for a small sleeping bag liner. The temp dipped significantly and our hut went from toasty warm to chilly. I also didn’t pack a spare battery or charging cable. Dumb! The tramp itself was a bit tougher than I expected but we really booked it for two days. Figuring the tides and making the low tide crossing into Anchorage would have been the smarter and more fun way to go. After about 20 km the extra 4 or 5 km on the high tide track kind of sucked! The track was amazing. The scenery life altering and the folks we met fun, interesting and cool. This is a no miss tramp whether you are overnight or just walking into the park for the day. Just awesome. And with some common sense prep vs. winging it, all would be perfect. Love it.

We Me and 4 adult kids drove from Nelson to Kaiteriteri approx 1 hr. Had a fabulous 12 km day walk from Medlands to Anchorage with family. Abel Tasman Water taxi took us an hour north and dropped us off on beach at Medlands. We started our walk ahead of others over Falls creek suspension bridge and lunched on beach of Torrent bay. In hindsight just a little further on down by toilets was an even nicer bay with jetty. As tide was high we had to go around the headland. This was the prettiest part of walk as water on left all the way. Deviated off track to Cleopatra pools. Was crowded there but a clean, cool water hole. Saw a weka scratching for food. Made it easily to Anchorage in time for a swim and a lie on the beach. Home via Wilson’s water taxi. Took us just under 4 hours with stops An easy walk with moderate incline
Fab day and then finished off with a beer and food at Mapua Wharf

Spectacular hiking in the park along the coastline -- definitely a highlight of our 2 month vacation. Stayed in Anchorage Bay for a couple of nights on the Aqua Packer with Mark and Jane as hosts. Breakfast and dinner, both excellent and more food than we could eat. Young and old -- the hike inspires!
