Customised Mountain Hiking

Visit the secret areas of the Mt Aspiring, Fiordland, and Mt Cook national parks. Our customised hiking trips are suitable for individuals, groups, and families looking for a personalised itinerary. Choose from a two day adventure to a two week trip taking in the best of the South West New Zealand World Heritage area.

Queenstown Mountain Guides hiking trips to take you to areas above and beyond the normal hiking routes. These areas are only possible to access to with local knowledge and expert professional guidance.

Imagine sleeping under a natural rock shelter in the incredible wilderness of the Darran Mountains.... and hearing the sound of waterfalls cascading down the mountainside, or the sound of ice breaking away from a hanging glacier and tumbling down a cliff face into the depths of the valley deep below.

The Fiordland and Mt Aspiring national parks are well known for the popular and busy great walks, but these walks are only a small part of the incredible wilderness areas in these mountain ranges. Let us show you the secret side of Mt Aspiring and Fiordland.
