The Marlborough Sounds were definitely my firm favourite during my trip to New Zealand. I thought this region was absolutely magnificent and the landscapes are breathtakingly beautiful.
Imagine green hills which head towards the sea, small roads which weave in the middle of fields and give you a view of the sea and the Sounds... And now, imagine a simple campsite on the waterfront where, if you are lucky, you can admire dolphins. It's what you will find at the end of the French Pass route which, in my opinion, is the country's most beautiful route.
If you take the time to discover the Marlborough Sounds, you will find superb settings, where you can eat muscles and oysters, picked directly from the rocks! I spent more than a week in this small corner of paradise, and I only left because I had run out of provisions apart from muscles again and again. One of my best memories in New Zealand!
