Please note

  • Note regarding fitness level required to undertake this walk:
  • The enjoyment of any walk is better if you have a reasonable degree of fitness – however, that doesn’t mean you need to be a marathon runner! If you are active 2 or 3 times a week (walking, golfing, running, gym) then this is an excellent base for doing a multi-day walk like the Queen Charlotte Track.
  • In the lead up to the trip, try to do at least one long walk (up to 8 hours) and also some hill walking as the Queen Charlotte Track does have some steeper sections. Keep in mind the longest day also has an optional boat ride for those who want a day of rest. Remember you only need to carry a day pack with your lunch, raincoat, something warm and water bottle/camera – this definitely makes the going easier. Your overnight luggage is transported by boat each day.
  • Your guide will encourage you to walk at your own pace rather than walk always as a group – it is your holiday after all!
