  • Marlborough Sounds and the wine trail

     

    The Marlborough region is one where the finer things in life can be enjoyed at a wonderfully relaxed pace.

    The first sight many have of the region is as they cruise through the Marlborough Sounds to Picton on the Inter-island ferry from Wellington. This is just a small taste of the beauty of the Sounds.

    Created when the sea inundated and flooded an ancient river system, the Marlborough Sounds are a seemingly endless network of convoluted waterways, bays, coves and islands. Being sheltered from the open sea, the sounds are perfect for cruising and kayaking and the islands and headlands within them are crisscrossed by fabulously scenic and peaceful walking tracks such as the Nydia and the famous Queen Charlotte.

    To reward you after your kayaking and walking exertions, you are perfectly placed in New Zealand’s largest wine producing area to relax with a refreshing glass of New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc, which is now regarded throughout the world as the benchmark for this varietal and is mainly produced in the Marlborough region along with Chardonnay, Riesling and Methode Champenoise.

    There are more than 50 wineries in the area around Blenheim and Renwick and, as many are located in close proximity to one another along the back roads, they are ideal for cycle touring and creating your own tasting trail. You may need to walk home afterwards though!

Cape Reinga & Salt Air
Cape Reinga is situated at the tip of the North Island and is known to the Maori as Te Rerenga Wairua, the leaping-place of the spirits. It is to here that the spirits of the dead travel on their journey to the homeland, Hawaiki. A half day fly/drive tour to Cape Reinga with Salt Air is a memorable experience.
