Family Hiking

New Zealand's Southern Alps are waiting for you and your family to explore. These remote surrounds are the perfect place for family members to bond without the distractions of everyday life.

Queenstown Mountain Guides offers multi-day helicopter accessed hut or camping based hiking trips with customised itineraries for your family. We can also offer your family professionally guided rock climbing and abseiling instruction as part of your trip in Queenstown.

At Queenstown Mountain Guides its all about the mountains and we plan days that are filled with exploration. for you and your family. Your kids will experience hiking, climbing, helicopter flights, glacial lakes and waterfalls, climbing alpine ridge lines. Maybe you will get to see the Kea, a large alpine parrot only found in New Zealand's Southern Alps, or spot a heard of mountain goats grazing on a mountain side.

You can choose the length of your trip with us and the activity focus. Please enquire with the Queenstown Mountain Guides office.
