Active Adventures is a small company based in Queenstown, so we know our country really well and have been running and refining our trips around New Zealand for over 20 years! We take small groups (usually of around 7 - 10 people), off the beaten tourist track and right into the heart of the landscape, but without having to give up your creature comforts.

Our 2-day Siberia Valley Adventure 'Siberia Overnight' trip starts and finishes in Queenstown, making it easy to explore Siberia Valley without having to worry about any of the logistics.

The adventure starts with a scenic drive over the Crowne Range to the tiny town of Makarora. Once here, we'll hop on a small fixed-wing plane and enjoy a stunning flight alongside the dramatic Southern Alps before landing on the Siberia Valley airstrip. After dropping our bags off at Siberia Hut you'll begin the hike up to Lake Crucible - a challenging and incredibly rewarding tramp, once you dip over the moraine wall, you'll be awestruck at the brilliant blue waters hidden under Mount Alba!

The hike back down will feel like a breeze after the uphill climb, especially knowing you'll have a cosy mountain hut and hot dinner to look forward to. The next day, an early hike brings you to the head of the Wilkin River where you'll be met be a jet boat for an exhilarating ride back to Makarora. It's truly a remarkable 36 hours!

How it works: The way it works is that we have 2 very experienced guides to look after each group (generally no more than 14 people, we like to keep our groups small), and the trip is fully guided to give us heaps of flexibility and peace of mind. Everyone is free to go at their own pace, so if you are keen for a challenge and want to really push yourself then you can certainly do that - alternatively, if you'd rather hang back and take things easy, well then that's fine too. Basically, it's your holiday so we'll always do our best to fit in with what you'd like to do!
