Upper South Island and the West Coast Sights

Cape Campbell Track

Fodor's Review

This is "boutique hiking"—the Cape Campbell Track, a 54-km (35-mi), four-day hike, wanders through two high country sheep stations on the wild exposed Marlborough coastline, climaxing at the Cape Campbell lighthouse. Accommodations are in homesteads and farm cottages along the way. It's basically a self-catering trip but supplies are available the last two nights to save packing too much food. But rest assured, your packs are transported ahead each day anyway. A highlight is on night three when accommodations are in cottages just below the lighthouse and a few steps from the beach. Mountain biking and horseback riding options are also available. Not suitable for children under eight.
