    What to Expect
    This guided snowshoe adventure from Queenstown covers a total walking distance of 1-2 km over two to four hours, with plenty of rest stops to snap pictures along the way.
    After hotel pickup, you’re transferred by minivan to a pristine mountain meadow. Strap on your provided snowshoes then get some practice during an introductory lesson before gliding across the snow at a leisurely pace. (It is recommended that you bring sunglasses to protect your eyes from the bright reflection on the snow.)
    Follow your guide along gently sloping terrain and feel the ease of walking across deep snow in your snowshoes. Your guide highlights the area’s natural history and wildlife, and stops at a mountaintop vista where you’re served cookies with a hot cup of coffee while soaking up the views from a freshly carved snow-seat. Once you finish your snowshoe hike, you’re returned by minivan to your Queenstown hotel.
    Please note: A minimum of 2 people per booking is required for the group departures.

    Spectacular views on a clear day, but the guide made difference between good and excellent. Guide Seb was very knowledgable about the region & snowcraft, and happy to share. We learnt lots and had a good time in the process!More

    Great way to see some amazing views of QT and the surround mountains. Went with friends and really enjoyed the hike up to the alpine lake. Guides were great and let us stop for breaks and photo ops. The picnic lunch sandwiches were banging!
