What you'll do

Our back country hike is no more than a 20-minute drive from town and your entire adventure will take around 4-5 hours from pickup to drop off. Grab your camera, breathe in the fresh air and prepare to embark on an epic journey through nature with little or no one in sight. Your friendly guide will highlight significant local history, flora, fauna, and landscape unique to the area. Be wowed by magnificent views throughout your adventure ensuring any picture is Instagram worthy. All that walking and exploring can make you hungry, so enjoy a scrumptious picnic lunch surrounded by majestic mountain peaks and breathtaking views during your hike. Your tour concludes with a scenic drive back to Queenstown.
