If you want MORE activity in Queenstown and don't want to pay for the gondola and skip the queues than take the Tiki Trail - we marked, ice uphill walk through the trees. Really enjoyed the serenity and the view from the top is magnificent....More
This is a lovely walk along well marked trails and fire trails up to the gondola area of Queenstown. It is a moderately strenuous walk with quite steep sections and some rocky scrambles. There are mountain bike trails and zippiness that descend through the area...More

There were moments (mainly coming down)...More
Not the most interesting hike, but okay if you don't want spend the money on the gondola. Its just very steep and in the forest. Be mindful if it had just rained as I know a lot of people who fell down.
