Where you'll be

We'll be hiking along the iconic Remarkables Mountain Ridge, with long drops to Queenstown below, providing the best views of the area! The nature of the walk allows for the group to reach the Alpine ridge at their own pace, and optional extensions for those that want to walk further.

This hike requires around 30-45 minutes of uphill effort to reach the ridge line. From there, you'll be rewarded with views from over a mile above Queenstown!

Rated 4.96 out of 5 from 23 reviews.

This was the best hike of my entire trip. Jamie took us on the most amazing hike that we would never been able to do without him. He is such an awesome person and so easy to talk with and we enjoyed every second of the hike. It was truly remarkable. Couldn’t say one bad thing about Jamie or the hike. This is definitely a must if you are in queenstown!

We did not go on the hike with Jamie, but with Andrew—to whom the review remarks apply. He was very knowledgeable and helpful and interesting and professional

I was lucky enough to go on a solo hike with Jamie, who is experienced, thoughtful, and funny. He took me to a beautiful spot overlooking Lake Wakatipu. The hike itself was relatively steep, but not difficult as you are not trekking for long and the views are amazing so time flies.
