Marlborough Sounds is where the natural magnificence of New Zealand is at its most spectacular. An intricate network of sunken river valleys at the top of the South Island gives the Sounds its unique waterscapes. Filled with the water of the Pacific Ocean, the four Sounds provide the perfect setting for a range of marine activities like boating, diving and fishing. Alternatively, you can drive along the picturesque Queen Charlotte Track and if lucky you can watch dolphins and seals milling about on the coast or even catch a glimpse of faraway orcas. Indulge your palate with fresh seafood, especially delicacies made from the local farmed salmon or the Greenshell mussel. As dusk falls, explore the boutique cafes and restaurants of Marlborough or head to your hotel to unwind with a glass of wine under the stars.
