From Source to Sea, An Abel Tasman Adventure

By | Articles by us

The first thing you always notice when you wake up in New Zealand is the harmonious orchestra of bird song. The constant chatter of many beautiful species fills the air. Perfect, you think, as you look out of the window of the floating backpackers to look at the brilliantly, beautiful , blue bay, surrounded by  bright and green native forest with the sun beating down onto the pristine golden beaches. That was the morning we woke to half way through our adventure…

It all started early on a Saturday morning, slamming back a coffee and hastily gobbling up some high energy breakfast.  We jumped in the car and sped off (within the speed limit!) around the Tasman bay. Travelling from Nelson City to Marahau taking only an hour on the small highway and then up and over a little hill  and being  greeted by a beautiful site- Sandy Bay.

We thought this review was pure gold!

Customers Review from Trip Advisor

Reviewed 1 October 2017
This one is on your bucket list!

Torrent River : Let’s qualify this review first.

We did this on the first day of the 2017/18 season, in 10degC water, on a 12degC day, cloudy and raining for the second half. With a 13yo in tow and with neither of us having any experience. The logistics were themselves major just getting there.

This is NOT your average tourist attraction. This is not even an extreme activity. This is just pure madness, bottled and sold by professionals.

Remember those youthful times at the river or the swimming hole with your mates when you did stupid things? Remember how it invariably just ended real bad for you or a mate, or you soon discovered how dangerous it really was and stopped?

Imagine what it would be like to do those cool things… but without all that risk. To be able to play with ropes, swings and fast flowing water but not have to think about how it should actually be done. To be able to run and jump off a rock without a care in the world as to what lay below you, or under that water.

You’re imagining Abel Tasman Canyons. A magical place where you just do crazy stuff and someone else stands there and worries themselves to death instead of you.

But there’s no need to worry, because everything has been engineered to the finest precision by seasoned professionals beforehand. All the risks have been controlled. You just do as your told and the magic happens.
