Beyond expectations.
Sarah our guide was absolutely fabulous! Interesting funny informative and so efficient. Couldn’t have asked for a better Abel Tasman experience. Accommodation and meals were spot on. Comfortable beds, great staff and superb locations.

Did the 3 day unguided walk with Wilsons awesome tourguide - a barefooted Rob who was superman in handling all bags, bus & boat transfers, met us at the lodges & served drinks and food! Day 1 was the boat trip to the northern point at Totaranui & a not too difficult 9km walk to the 1st lodge at Awaroa. Both lodges are full of character & history. Bedrooms all have ensuites but be warned hot water due to solar / battery generation is only available from 4pm-7pm & early morning. the tour includes food which is 5 star dining but drinks have to be paid for. Bring aqua shoes for the tidal crossing as it does get muddy. Also insect repellent as the sandflies are everywhere! Day 2 is the killer with a 17km walk over 7 hills with 3 steep climbs! Day 3 is a welcome sedate 13km with 1 hill and then homeward bound to Marahau where Rob greets you & the bus back to Motueka. We were fortunate to have sunny weather throughout but can imagine that rain would make some of the walking quite tough, especially going down hill. Walking poles are a godsend & take a Camelbak with water bladder. you will need a lot of water. Conclusion - a very well run & expertly catered experience.

Everything about the experience was exceptional. We came for a walking family holiday and got so much more!! Sarah our host really made the trip memorable and fun. (Ask for Sarah, she’s awesome!) The accommodation is amazing. The beds and linen were super comfy and having your own ensuite is pure luxury. We loved having a wine by the fire after a day walking. Would highly recommend the whole experience to anyone.

The Abel Tasman has always been on the to do list. In 2023 we decided to make it happen.
There was a core group of 12. Then another 6 were added. We decided to go with Wilson’s as I have heard good things over the years.
There were a few options to choose from and we had lots of questions to work through. The Wilson’s team were helpful and patient.
We decided to go with the 3 day kayak and walk option. This meant this it was going to be guided.
We didn’t necessarily feel that we needed guiding during the walk part - however we went with the flow.
Our two guides Ollie and Jack were chilled, experienced and very knowledgeable. They showed us flora and fauna we would never have seen on our own. We also asked them to take us to a spot called Cleopatras water hole. And they made it happen (luckily the tides were in our favour).
Our team loved the trip.
Thanks Ollie, Jack and Rod.
