‘One step at a time is good walking’ – Chinese Proverb
With our fantastic location in the Marlborough Sounds, we have access to some amazing one-day and multi-day walks on the Queen Charlotte Track and Nydia Track.
Gorgeous coastal views, the stunning Marlborough Sounds, and native bush – the QCT is utterly unique. Combining the best of NZ walking and biking with a seamless network of cruise and pack transfers, resorts and lodges, and great food and wine, whether you’re here for one day or five, the Queen Charlotte Track is brilliant every day.
The Queen Charlotte Track runs the length of the Queen Charlotte Sound, covering 71km. The track is not classed as steep, however there are some challenging days. Along the track are areas of historical relevance, beautiful secluded bays and lush coastal bush. The track is classed as undulating with high points of 400m and has a clay base. Sturdy shoes are recommended and a good level of fitness will help.
All trips include a Queen Charlotte Track Land Co-op pass, which allows access through private land. The Landowners just ask for a small towards maintenance, improvements and access. Please respect the land made available for your enjoyment by this special public/private partnership.
Native forests, historic bays, saddles with superb views and sheltered shorelines – the Nydia Track offers a glimpse of how some of the first European settlers worked and lived in this remote area, all those years ago.
If you are wanting to get amongst the forest animals and the sounds of nature in multiple activities, check out one of our combination trips.
