Marlborough has around 2,350 hours of sunshine with New Zealand’s average being 2,000 hours. So in spring months remember sunscreen and a hat, but also pack thermals as weather is changeable
We have plenty of storage space but we urge you to keep your luggage to a minimum. Please limit yourself to 18 kgs; two smaller bags are better than one large heavy bag, one for cycle gear and one for other clothing. Sports bags or soft sided suitcases are the easiest way to store and access your luggage. A day pack is a must.
