Next catch a boat through the gorgeous Marlborough Sounds, to your chosen starting point, and begin your hike along the Queen Charlotte track.

Your luggage will be transferred by water taxi for you, so you can enjoy your walk more, and take things at your own pace. Spend 2 nights along the Queen Charlotte Track, overnighting in lodges hidden among nature. Allow time to take a kayak or stand-up paddle board and explore more of these beautiful bays and coves from the water.
This tour is a perfect combination of the some of the best New Zealand wine and walking!
Viva's Best Bits...
Marlborough wine region does not only have the best wine but also set upon stunning coastlines. The Marlborough Wine Trail is a great way to get off the beaten track!
The Queen Charlotte Track, is unique and a less walked track and great way to combine stunning coastal and forest scenery.
"The boat trips to and from the Queen Charlotte track are great for spotting some incredible wildlife like groups of dolphins who are surfing the waves!" Ersan, Team Viva
