If you think the riding has been good so far, it gets even better today. We ride over the twisty Rimutaka Hill to meet our inter-island ferry at Wellington before taking the three-hour ferry ride to Picton – ‘Gateway to the South Island’. You’ll experience some lovely twisties as you negotiate Rimutaka Hill after leaving Featherston.
On the ferry, you’ll be able to stay inside or you can stand outside on the deck and enjoy the weather. You’ll enjoy views of the famous Marlborough Sounds from the deck.
Leaving Picton, you’ll experience the Queen Charlotte Drive to Havelock, an incredibly stunning ride. There are many opportunities to stop and take photos on the way.
