Travel with Wilderness Guides under the New Zealand Government's Covid Protection Framework (traffic light system).
In the orange light setting the lodges and water taxis on the Queen Charlotte Track are still operating. The only difference is social distancing on the boats and in the lodges so business is pretty much normal.
If you do test positive for Covid and you need to postpone because you are a close contact with someone with Covid, then our Cancellation Due to Government-imposed Travel Bans policy will apply.
Proof of positive test will be required.

Our Invitation to You...
A new dawn is on the horizon for New Zealand tourism.
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.
The Queen Charlotte Track in the Marlborough Sounds is known as the finest and most diverse coastal track in New Zealand.
Located at the top of the South Island, and it is accessible by boat from Picton to its beginning at the scenic and historic reserve of Ship Cove in Queen Charlotte Sound. The Queen Charlotte Track is 72km long and most people walk the track over four days, although there is the ability to do any combination from one to five days.
Wilderness Guides has been part of the tourism landscape in the Marlborough Sounds for 22 years this October and we don't plan to be going anywhere, anytime soon. We invite you to explore the Marlborough Sounds and Queen Charlotte Track with us.
Our team looks forward to showing you around.
