Trip Info

Come and enjoy this amazing hiking trip! The Remarkables ski field is located approximately 45 minutes away from Queenstown by car. It is one of the most fascinating destinations for a half-day hike featuring a gorgeous New Zealand landscape. The summer views are just as amazing as they are from the chairlift in winter.

This journey begins at the ski field car park at approximately 1600m, which gives you a head start for the hike. For the next 300m, it’ll be a steady climb up all the way up to Shadow Basin. Then, you will traverse across the ridgeline and head to Lake Alta before heading back down.

Your private tour guide, Mark Dewsbery, will share stories of the area and his passion for the outdoors.
