Abel Tasman Coastal Track

Most famous hike in the Abel Tasman National Park

New Zealand, South Island
1-5 days

Abel Tasman Coast Track is a 60 kilometers (37 miles) long walking trackĀ in Abel Tasman National Park and one of New Zealand's Great Walks.

It is a one way route through nearly the whole Abel Tasman National Park mostly along the coast line featuring a beautiful green scenery and sandy beaches.


  • Since this hike can take up to 5 days, you can also do a day hike out of it and still see the beauty of the national park.
  • If you decide on doing the multi-day-hike make sure to book in advance (especially during peak season) as huts along the way have limited capacity
  • Check tide times! If you're walking sections of the track with tidal crossings, check tide times to avoid getting stranded. The schedule is available at visitor centers and online.
