A fantastic packaged tour taking in the Abel Tasman walking track over 3 glorious days in early April. Staying in the 2 lodges owned and operated by Wilsons was a highlight as was the views from the track. A wonderful 'glamping' experience. Highly recommend it.

Hi. We are booked for the 18th March. The trip says it includes beaches, bays and seals and guided kayaking with lunch. Just wondering do I have to do the kayaking or can I opt out of that bit? My husband will definitely want to do all. Thanks, Phil and John Regan
