Abel Tasman National Park, named after the 17th-century Dutch merchant Abel Janszoon Tasman, encompasses the granite mountain range that lies beyond Kahurangi National Park. While there is plenty to see and do here, the park is most famous for the Abel Tasman Coastal Track, a multi-day hike that winds its way along white sandy beaches and past crystal clear bays. You may even see New Zealand wildlife like little blue penguins, fur seal colonies or bottlenose dolphins. Head east to the nearby Marlborough region, and explore New Zealand’s celebrated largest producing areas. You can experience the region’s wine industry by visiting vineyards, and touring the wineries - there’s more than 30 cellar doors to choose from. Just don't forget to try the internationally-renowned Sauvignon Blanc. Guided tours are available or you can rent a bike and explore them at your leisure. Popular vineyards include Framingham Wines, Yealand Estate Winery, and Saint Clair Family Estate. Marlborough has far more to offer than just fine wine. The region also boasts stunning scenery, most notably Marlborough Sound, an extensive network of sea-drowned valleys. You can rent a boat to explore hidden coves and come face-to-face with local fauna including the rare Rowi kiwi, tuatara, and weka. You can even swim with five different species of dolphins on special guided tours.
