This is a truly great hike with spectacular views and a well-maintained path. The distances can be adjusted by arrangement with a water taxi to suit ability

Amazing area to visit. Was on a cruise w Holland America for two weeks Sydney to Auckland. Goal was to see the most sounds and scenery on cruise. This area is beautiful and has a variety of attractions or activities to enjoy including the Marlborough wine region

Fantastic views of beautiful bays and bush covered mountains. Something new around every corner. Great to explore by foot, ferry, bike, water, road, path, air, boat, coast, mountain... Just do it!

The hills may get bigger by day but so do the views. We are in the 60 plus group and are casual walkers but we managed this track just fine. From day 3-4 at every corner, we were wowed by the views. Well worth walking. We recommend you do it, especially while the track is relatively quiet.

This is one very peaceful sound with its myriad bays. What a fantastic place, one could live out here away from others. But the cost would be huge and it would be worth it. Wake up in the mornings and listen to the birds singing. Yes another Wow place for visiting.

Absolutely stunning scenery from start to finish. As a group of 60 year olds, we were challenged but made it through from ships cove to portage over 3 days. Do it again in a heartbeat.

It was a stunning drive, with plenty of places to stop and take photos of the Sound. There are benches at certain locations to take a break and soak up the views even more.
There are passing places, so you can not feel pressured to drive too quickly also.
If you’re driving towards Nelson, I would highly recommend this route rather than taking the highway all the way there!
