Queen Charlotte Track, Picton

4.8
#1 of 49 in Outdoors in Marlborough Region
Whether it’s one day or five, on foot bike or boat and under summer sun or blindingly blue winter skies, every day is a brilliant day on the Queen Charlotte Track. Only on Marlborough’s Queen Charlotte can you combine beautiful coastal scenery, native bush and comfortable walking with your choice of lodge accommodation, where every brilliant day ends with a soft bed, great food and wine, and your luggage waiting for you in your room.

  • The queen Charlotte track is in total just over 70 km long, most pieces are slowly climbing where the view from above over the Lakes is beautiful. There are so many possibilities to logement per piece that one wants to walk away, and there's something for everyone. A pleasant walk! Also many mountain bikers on this track. Simply worth the trouble!
