ABEL TASMAN NATIONAL PARK: SITUATION, PRICE AND PERMITS

ESPAÑOL

SITUATION

The park is at the north end of the South Island, 65 km from the city of Nelson, being the closest major city.

It was founded in 1942, coinciding with the 300th anniversary of the arrival of Abel Tasman. It is the smallest national park in New Zealand with an area of 237 km², less than half that of Auckland‘s area, the main city in the country.

PERMITS AND PRICE

  • The entrance to the park is free.
  • But you have to book in advance the camps or huts for the Coastal Track, which are not free of charge, and they are not cheap at all. In case of showing up without a reservation, we will either pay a fine, or we will be expelled from the park. Not so with those of the Inland Track, which are free and do not require a reservation.
  • Dogs are not allowed, except hunting dogs with their relevant permits and documentation in the areas designated specifically for that activity.
  • On the official website it says nothing about the use of drones, although presumably they are not authorized.
