Peppers Portage

2923 Kenepuru Rd., 19 km (12 miles) off Queen Charlotte Dr., Portage, Marlborough, 7282, New Zealand

Views across Kenepuru Sound, a scenic location, and well-appointed accommodations add up to a memorable wilderness stay, well geared to hikers and mountain-bikers straight off the Queen Charlotte Track. The best rooms have spa baths and private courtyards, while an excellent restaurant and a casual cafe and bar are on the property. You can access the Portage by boat from Picton (15 minutes on a water taxi) or car from Havelock. The drive takes about 1½ hours on a paved but winding road; the water taxi from Picton is shorter and more relaxing. Mountain bikes and kayaks are available for guests and guided tours can be arranged.
