Kaiteriteri, Abel Tasman Nat'l Park, New Zealand
The location of this place can’t be beat—it is surrounded by native bush and pristine beaches right in the heart of Abel Tasman National Park. The lodge is accessible only via trail, boat, or helicopter. We arrive at a trailhead by water taxi, hop into the water, and wade to shore. We then hike to the lodge. Rooms are small but lovely, with sunny private decks. The restaurant is very good, well known among the hikers and yachters who frequent the area. From the lodge, we can hike right onto Abel Tasman’s stunning trails.
