About Queen Charlotte Track Walks

QCT 1As Marlborough’s most experienced adventure tour operator on the Queen Charlotte Track, we have an unsurpassed knowledge of how hikers like to enjoy this stunning walk. Our packages are designed to ensure that no matter if you are a guided or independent hiker, your walking experience on the Queen Charlotte Track is complete and comprehensive. Where possible we have included some extra features that are not available with other tour operators.

We recognise that some people prefer a complete walking holiday, sharing their experience with a group of like-minded people from all over the world and therefore the guided option is the best one. We also recognise that some people prefer to be independent and walk on their own, or with their group of friends only, therefore we also offer a “freedom” option.

Our guided walks are an ideal option for those wanting that true walking holiday. The itinerary is designed to give walkers a complete package option with lots of flexibility so that you can include some sea kayaking, fishing or a wine tour during your walking holiday. There are no hidden extra costs incurred during your four or five days with us. Features of the guided walks include accommodation with en-suite and sea view, all meals (including fine dining each evening with a complimentary glass of wine), daily luggage transfers and complimentary sea kayak options as part of the trip (applies to 5 day walk only).

Our group size ranges from 2 to 24 per departure (dependent upon time of the year) and we have a guide-to-client ratio of 1 guide to 12 clients. Our guides are mature, knowledgeable and fun-loving. They enjoy sharing their passion and knowledge of the Marlborough Sounds with you.
