1. Abel Tasman National Park

New Zealand really is the ultimate smorgasbord of countries, and so it's no surprise that Abel Tasman National Park has something for everyone.

Whether you want to relax at one of the rural lodges dotted throughout the park and soak up the stunning views, hike along one of the arils, swim out in the azure waters, kayak out into the blue, or go on a boat ride taking in the views and trying to spot seals, the park has it all.
