Too Good to be True?
This is exactly how the beautifil Abel Tasman National Park looks. It may be the smallest of New Zealand's thirteen national parks but the Abel Tasman is the most beautiful in my view. Regardless of the time of year you visit, this oasis of pristine, golden sand beaches and unbelievably clear turquoise blue waters at the top of the South Island is stunning. It's a miracle of nature. And thankfully, there are numerous ways of exploring the park - trekking, cruises and best of all, kayaking. The Wilson family pioneered tourism in Abel Tasman National Park back in 1977 and since then they've gone from strength to strength. Now Abel Tasman Wilsons Experiences offers visitors a wide variety of terrific excursions. They can arrange walks on the Abel Tasman Track staying in their own accommodation lodges; they'll take you on a boat cruise; or they'll let you loose in sea kayaks with an experienced guide who will introduce you to the bounty of wildlife. If you've never visited the South Island before, the Abel Tasman is a MUST VISIT. www.abeltasman.co.nz
