What you'll do
Take the time out to try your hand at Snowshoeing, among the snow and ice, and see for yourself the jaw-dropping Winter views across the Wakatipu Basin, a mile above Queenstown. Explore the Remarkables "Jagged Edge" ridge at your own pace! Your guide will provide an in-depth interpretation of this delicate Alpine environment, including flora, fauna, geology, local history and Maori Legends surrounding this land. This hike will also be tailored around your group's fitness level. Take a relaxing stroll and enjoy a high altitude picnic or get your stomp on and maximize your journey! At the end of the Snowshoe, you'll be returned safely to Queenstown. Whilst this walk has a longer duration the required uphill walking is very short, starting from an established high car park. We spend most time enjoying the atmosphere, telling stories and taking in the incredible views. 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!
