Itinerário:
Nature's Best Walk
One of the most popular day hikes, the moderately challenging 5-hour walk between Ship Cove and Furneaux Lodge covers 9 miles (14 km). After a scenic boat ride to the start of your walk, take a moment to discover the history of Ship Cove. In 1770, Captain James Cook resupplied his ship here and it became his favorite anchorage in New Zealand. You can browse informative displays about Cook and the Maori; see a monument to Cook and carved sculptures by Maori artisans. Enjoy the pretty beach where you may spot shorebirds such oyster catchers and weka. 

Then hit the trail, following well-groomed paths through virgin rainforest on a steady climb to the Tawa Pass. Soak up spectacular views of the sound as you walk, including Resolution Bay, Tawa Bay and Endeavour Inlet. Arriving at Furneaux Lodge, have time to relax and perhaps purchase a late lunch or coffee before returning to Picton. 

Lodge to Lodge Walk
One of the easiest sections of the track, the Lodge to Lodge walk begins at Furneaux Lodge and ends at the Punga Cove Resort. After about a 1.5-hour boat ride, arrive at Furneax Lodge. If you like, purchase coffee or brunch at the lodge before setting out on your trek. The trail mostly follows the coastline around Endeavour Inlet, winding through lush native plant life on land that was once farmland and has been allowed to regenerate with native bush. Stop to see the remains of an antimony mine and read the posted information panels about it on-site. Continue along the shore then through native forest with fantastic views right of the Inlet and the larger Queen Charlotte Sound. 

Expect a relatively easy 3- to 4.5-hour walk covering almost 8 miles (12.7 km) with some up and down. When you arrive at Punga Cove Resort, purchase a well-deserved beverage at the Boat Shed Café before boarding your boat for the return journey to Picton.

Top of the World
This route permits you to walk a lot of the track in the shortest amount of time. Expect to walk just under 15 miles (24 km) on a challenging full-day walk that takes about 8 hours, and is well worth the effort. Your day starts when your boat leaves Picton in the morning and drops you off at Torea Bay. 

Start up the trail to the ridge line and soak in panoramic views of the Queen Charlotte and Kenepuru Sounds as you trek. Follow the path through native forest and pine forest with stunning scenery throughout the day. When you arrive at Punga Cove, reward yourself with the purchase of a drink or a meal at the resort’s bar. Your boat picks you up in the late afternoon to take you back to Picton.
