Queen Charlotte Track Guided Walk Packages (1 Day to 5 Days)

As a general rule, if you would like an upmarket, all-inclusive style of your Queen Charlotte Track tour with an emphasis on fine food and wine with everything provided including interpretation on the Marlborough Sounds area from a knowledgeable local guide, then a guided walk is for you. Guided walks are for those who want to complement their walking experience with the knowledge and safety of a professional local guide, great gourmet food and local wine, and luxury accommodation. We have three packages to choose from - the Classic, The Premier or Five Star guided walk. Or perhaps you want a custom package designed – we can do that for you too for your dream Queen Charlotte Track walk itinerary!

We have designed a wide range of packages with varying inclusions to suit every need and budget for the Queen Charlotte Track. Check out our quick reference table below to help choose the right package for you.
