Why Travelers Choose This Tour

A fun yet low-impact workout in the outdoors, snowshoeing is a great way to enjoy winter on the South Island. If you can walk, you can snowshoe — it’s that easy.
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.
