Explore the remote wilderness around Queenstown or experience one of New Zealand's Great Walks with our local guides

Whether you prefer a short, day-long or multi-day hiking adventure, there is a Queenstown guided walk option for you.

Get off the beaten track and explore pristine backcountry wilderness on a guided walk from Queenstown. From heli-hiking to guided Great Walk experiences, our local guides share walks chosen for their scenic beauty, rich nature and wildlife.

Guided walks are ideal if you enjoy exploring with a knowledgeable local expert, or if you want the security of knowing that you’re hiking with a guide who knows how to navigate challenging alpine terrain and changeable weather safely. Some guided walk organisers will transport your pack for you, leaving you free to hike with a day pack.

If you want to experience our mountain scenery without a multi-day hike to get there, heli-hikes offer the perfect way to access breath-taking remote locations. Heli-hike experiences include glacier hikes, backcountry mountain peaks, and overnight wilderness camping adventures.
