This 1-day guided walk is great for those of you with limited time in this area.
Your morning starts at our base, where you will meet your intrepid guide for the day, and prepare for your trip. There is a short 25 minute water taxi ride out to Lochmara Lodge, where you will disembark to walk through the grounds of the Lodge onto the Queen Charlotte Track. There are plenty of entertaining and engaging sculptures on the trail to the Queen Charlotte Track. Once on the Queen Charlotte Track, you will turn west towards Anakiwa. There are some fantastic views over both the Kenepuru and Queen Charlotte Sounds before you drop down onto the Te Mahia Saddle.
From Te Mahia Saddle, you will follow the old bridle paths high above the water. Somewhere along this section you will stop for lunch with a view that you just can’t beat! After lunch you will work your way towards Anakiwa, through mature beech forest, which stays cool even during the hot summer months. On arrival in Anakiwa you will be greeted with a complimentary refreshment to enjoy while you chat about your brilliant day on the Queen Charlotte Track.
