Marlborough

If you travel across the Cook Strait by ferry, your first stop in the South Island will be the beautiful Marlborough region. New Zealand's reputation for producing world-class Sauvignon Blancs is largely due to the Marlborough region's wineries - the sunny cool climate makes the region ideal for growing grapes. You'll want to indulge in a tipsy excursion by bike through the many wineries dotted around the Blenheim area.

The region also boasts stunning natural beauty in the form of the Marlborough Sounds, a maze of sounds, islands, inlets, beaches and peninsulas. The town of Picton is the jumping off point for a trip to the Sounds, and in summer the place is humming with visitors planning kayaking, boating, mountain biking and tramping trips to the popular Queen Charlotte track.

Must-do

  • Bike around the wineries of Blenheim and Renwick
  • Tramp or mountain bike the Queen Charlotte Track
  • Enjoy a night of luxury and relative isolation at Furneaux Lodge
  • Swimming with the dolphins while exploring the Sounds by boat
