South Island

Queenstown & Wanaka

Remote Wilderness Areas of South Island
Your hosts can assist in arranging:
  • Individual or guided walks in alpine parks and across wildflower meadows to mountain lakes – all seasons except winter.
  • Heli-hiking – take a scenic helicopter flight to pristine wilderness, trek in splendid isolation through spectacular mountain scenery.
Alpine Plants
The scenes on this page are typical of the remote alpine regions around Wanaka and Queenstown that can be reached by helicopter or backcountry tramping. Your trip could be to an entirely different location –  including places easily reached in your hire car. Whatever your destination, we are sure that you will enjoy every minute of being there.
