Abel Tasman National Park is the smallest national park in New Zealand but don't let its size fooled you. This tiny national park is home to one of the 10 Great Walks of New Zealand, the Abel Tasman Track which goes along the coastline of the northern tip of the South Island.
To do the entire 60 km length of the Abel Tasman Track would take you from 3 - 5 days to complete but for those of you who are short on time, you can pick sections of the Abel Tasman Track and do them as day trips.
For this hiking guide, I will show you how you can hike the Abel Tasman Track for a day, which section is the prettiest, and how do you get to and from the Abel Tasman National Park. Without further ado, here is all the information you need for a one-day hike in the Abel Tasman National Park.
