Queen Charlotte Track in Comfort

  • Walk the Queen Charlotte Track, staying in tranquil lodges and a luxury B&B
  • Picton, a picturesque harbour town and gateway to this classic track
  • Delicious dinners made of fresh local produce and with extensive wine lists
  • Bays, inlets, islands and peninsulas rising from turquoise waters
  • Ship Cove, favourite anchorage of Captain Cook in the 1770’s

Walk the Queen Charlotte Track, one of New Zealand’s classic coastal trails, whilst staying in stunningly located premier lodges.

Ship Cove, where the trail begins, was Captain Cook’s favourite place to anchor in the 1770’s and according to Maori legend these landscapes are the prows of sunken canoes belonging to Aoraki, their sacred ancestor. Steeped in both Maori and European history it meanders over skyline ridges with constant views of the Marlborough Sounds. Lush forested hills rise steeply from the sea with sheltered coves and sandy bays never far away.

Pause for a dip in the turquoise waters and enjoy the superb local food and Marlborough wine, which this area is famous for.
