Our guided walks take you to our 'kiwi' bach built in the early 1900s by a farmer attempting to run sheep along the rocky granite coastline of what is today the renowned Abel Tasman National Park. Old but brimming with history, visitors hear the tales of whale strandings and local stories while enjoying a lunch stop in one of the most beautiful bays of the Abel Tasman National Park.

Our trip was all organized by e-mail. When we arrived in Nelson and collected our paperwork everything was in order for a great trip. The route, accommodation and lunches were great! Thanks for a great trip.
