The Remarkables Tours

53 Reviews
New Zealand’s outdoor playground, the Remarkables, located high in mountainous country, possesses a great sense of excitement for any visitor looking to rip-up the alpines. With fabulous skiing, hiking, snowboarding and opportunities to just hangout, the entire family will get a kick from these majestic reserves.

Cool jumps, tunnels, trails, and even a bouncy castle at the crèche are available for children of all ages, while snow-sports schools are waiting for adults who have put off the slopes for too long.

You can also have a look at how the pros do it, with international competitions that take place. See boarders go sky-high off the half-pipes, or see renowned skier’s flow between slaloms at immense speeds.

Located just 26 miles south of Queenstown, the short 45-minute detour to the Remarkables is well worth your time. No car? No problem. Daily shuttle services are also available to and from Queenstown. You can also feel free to book one of the many available guided tours, which will take you though the nooks and crannies of the mountains’ valley’s and peaks.
