For the budget conscious this overnight trip this is fantastic.  You get to experience what is truly magic about the Abel Tasman - spend a stunning night camping in one of the secluded beach-side campsites. Take time to explore the vast array of beautiful golden beaches in the forest fringed Astrolabe Roadstead. Visit the protected Adele Island sanctuary, home to the NZ Fur Seal and a symphony of native birds. This is a favourite trip of the locals and our guides.
