Wilderness Guides is the largest provider of mountain bike tours and independent hire for the Queen Charlotte Track. From our Picton base, we can handle all your arrangements – including bike hire, accommodation, luggage transfers and water transport.
At Wilderness Guides, we’ve helped visitors experience the Queen Charlotte Track for the last 23 years. Today, we’re proud to be the largest mountain bike adventure company serving this Great Ride.
Open all year, the Queen Charlotte Track can be ridden in full during autumn and winter, when walker numbers are lower, or enjoyed on individual sections and combo packages in spring and summer.
Choose from our basic bike hire, or our popular adventure tour packages including accommodation, packed lunches and water taxi transfers. All these feature high-quality 11-speed Kona hardtail bikes with front suspension or you can upgrade to Cannondale full suspension E bike. A helmet, repair kit and pump are also provided. Our luggage transfers also included ensure you don’t have to carry a heavy pack while you ride.
With its wide, benched surface, spectacular views, native bush and some technical sections, the Queen Charlotte Track offers bikers an exhilarating challenge for intermediate to advanced riders. Less experienced riders can also enjoy certain sections of the trail, full of spectacular Marlborough Sounds’ scenery.
Whichever part of the Queen Charlotte Track you tackle, an unforgettable cycling adventure awaits. Let Wilderness Guides help make that happen – your adventure begins here!
