Oh how we love this time of the year. After a busy summer, we now have time to catch our breath, sleep in a little longer each day and go home a little earlier! Just as the weather changes, so do our activities for the winter, as we focus on “winter versions” for sea kayaking, walking and biking Queen Charlotte Track.
You may well ask why would you want to come to the Sounds in the winter, but a typical winter day in the Sounds is not to be missed! Cool evenings, frosty mornings and calm, clear days are the typical weather in the Sounds for the next few months. Perfect for walking and biking on the Queen Charlotte Track – so we have dusted off our winter walk and bike packages again. The hotels are ready and waiting to greet you each day after your walk or bike ride with toasty hotel rooms and delicious simple dinners with a glass of wine each night.
The packages are excellent value for money and a perfect opportunity to escape for a few days from the winter hum drum.
Our Australian friends can enjoy an excellent deal, flying right into Marlborough but you need to be in quick as they are only avaialble for another week on http://www.airnewzealand.com.au/cheap-flights-new-zealand
For sea kayakers, winter can be a stunning time to be out paddling – the wildlife is prolific and you can have the whole place to yourself – a paddlers dream.
We look forward to seeing you here sometime soon and just remember “there is no such thing as bad weather, just a bad choice of clothing”!
It has been a chilly start to Labour Weekend in Picton after a stunning day here yesterday. Fantastic to see so many Christchurch residents here this weekend and see them relaxing, enjoying the peace and quiet of Picton and the Marlborough Sounds. There is lots to do this weekend with sea kayaking, mountain biking, hiking on the Queen Charlotte Track all excellent options for a day or two. Coffee on the waterfront is proving to be a popular option along with our hot chocolates - cocoa beans specially roasted by Ozone Coffee Roasters (yum!). The pubs and cafe’s are gearing up for the big game tomorrow night and there certainly seems to be a few nerves around! Go the All Blacks
