Abel Tasman Remote

  • Helicopter overview.
  • Remoteness with safe, stunning trekking with moderate fitness required
  • Coastal cruising
  • Priced from $2,912.50 for 2 guests
This ultimate day experience starts with a helicopter pickup from your lodge or nearest heli-pad with your guide for the day to then fly over the world renown Abel Tasman National Park to land on a sandspit in Golden Bay at the remote northern of the park.

Our unique concession provides sole access for those choosing a truely remote experience without the crowds and noisy commercial activity but in a safe and fully hosted by a highly experienced guide who carries all refreshments along with a packed gourmet  lunch.

The walk starts at Wainui Bay on old early settlers track and gradually passes over the highest point on the track before descending down a stream to Whariwharangi the first of many beautiful golden sand beaches to walk on. There will be time for a paddle, swim and refreshments before ascending a zigzag track over an inland saddle before reaching Mutton Cove. If time and fitness allows there is an option to walk to Separation Point (so named as it divides Golden Bay from Tasman Bay).

A succession of rocky headlands and stunning beaches are traversed prior to Anapai Bay often described as Abel Tasmans most beautiful Beach, before another low saddle, around an estuary to Totoranui where your private charter boat waits to cruise around the remainder of the park coastline to Kaiteriteri before being driven back to your lodge.
