Queen Charlotte Track Update: July’s major weather event in Marlborough has caused slips along the Queen Charlotte Track and some sections are currently closed for repair.
The Department of Conservation (DOC) is working as fast as they can to open the track soon.
We will keep you updated on progress as information comes to hand and look forward to welcoming you to Marlborough.
Cancellations Due to Government-imposed Travel Bans: If you cannot travel due to a Government-imposed travel ban or border closure, we can transfer your booking to a later date with no penalty or transfer fee as long as this is within the next 12 months from your original date. This will depend on availability and differences in the package price may apply. Otherwise, our standard cancellation policy applies. See our Terms & Conditions HERE
Our Invitation to You...
A new dawn is on the horizon for New Zealand tourism.
Endings are followed by beginnings and so it is we look towards our new reality post COVID-19 with a positive outlook - it's time to shape our visitor industry with protection and enhancement of our environment at its core.
It's also our chance to reconnect with nature. Never has there been a better time to appreciate all that we have on our own doorstep. We're excited at the prospect of showing you our backyard.
Wilderness Guides has been part of the tourism landscape in the Marlborough Sounds for 21 years this October and we don't plan to be going anywhere, anytime soon. So, we invite you to explore the Marlborough Sounds and Queen Charlotte Track with us.
We look forward to showing you around.
