Short on time but want the unique experience of our ATK Classic, or want to combine with a day or two of hiking? This is the perfect holiday for you.

Join the first two days of the ATK Classic 3-day tour. Kayak the coastline from beautiful Totaranui in the North down to Anchorage. Spacious and spectacular; the northern section is seldom visited by others. Completely immerse yourself in the natural wonders of the Abel Tasman National Park. Experience it all from paddling with seals, relaxing on numerous beaches, exploring lagoons, islands and Maori Pa (village) sites to learning about local history and lore. It's a relaxing, content rich and memorable two day experience which is fully catered with food. At the end of day two, return by scenic Aqua Taxi to Marahau. Alternatively, stay in the park and spend another day or two exploring the coastal track! Just ask us to discuss pricing and options for extended kayak and hiking itineraries.
