QCT Round Trip Track Pass

$105 adult | $60 child - walk or bike the length of the Queen Charlotte Track and we'll bring your bags

Cougar Line will take you from Picton to the start of the Queen Charlotte Track, Ship Cove/Meretoto, by boat, and transfer your luggage each day to your next accommodation, before meeting you at the end of the track at Anakiwa for a well-earned boat ride home.

The 73km Queen Charlotte Track offers scenery that will take your breath away including lush native forest and stunning vistas of the beautiful Marlborough Sounds. Marlborough's brilliant climate allows for good year-round conditions along the track. Walk the track over 3-5 days or bike it over 2-3 days.

The Round Trip Track Pass is the easiest and most economical way to walk the entire track. With this pass we offer you:

  • water transfers to and from the track
  • luggage transfer to your accommodation each day - you only need to carry a day pack.

The first step is to work out how many days you'd like to spend on the track and where you're staying - we highly recommend our sister businesses Furneaux Lodge and Punga Cove. Then, we can help you with the rest - including a QCT Land Cooporative pass if you're walking/biking the section between Punga Cove and Anakiwa over land.

Make your memorable Queen Charlotte Track experience with Cougar Line.
