Tramping, Walking, Hiking

The Pelorus region offers many opportunities for walking, tramping or hiking, from short walks of just a few minutes, to overnight trips with the 27km Nydia Track from Tennyson Inlet to Kaiuma Bay, the longest, while Mount Stokes, accessible from the head of Keneperu Sound is the highest point in the Marlborough Sounds. Inland, there are short walks around Pelorus Bridge, and the head of the Wakamarina Valley provides walking access to Mount Richmond Forest Park. If you're looking for somewhere really remote, you could always explore D'Urville Island.

If you need accommodation in the area before or after your adventures, or you need transport to and from walking tracks, there are plenty of local operators who can help.
