If you’re looking for the iconic kiwi adventure, then look no further than a classic.

Our classic trips serve up everything that is special about the Abel Tasman National Park. Treat yourself to memories you'll cherish for life.This fully outfitted adventure has long been the benchmark for overnight guided kayak adventures in New Zealand. There will be no better time to experience it than this summer. Summers call for lasting memories, and our Classics do just that. 

Kayak the coastline from beautiful Awaroa in the North back to Marahau. 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. Be wowed by the night sky, the milky way is truly amazing in the park. Enjoy drifting off to sleep listening to the waves before waking up to hear bird song.

It's a relaxing, content rich guided kayak and camping experience, fully catered with food. If you would like to extend this trip pre/post ask us to discuss pricing and options for extended kayak and hiking itineraries.
