Snowshoeing Trips

If you can walk, you can snowshoe...

Our high performance slimline snowshoes make navigating snow-covered terrain effortless, opening up huge possibilities for exploring the winter wilderness. If you can walk you can snowshoe - it's that easy! Experience the serenity of the spectacular alpine environment around Queenstown this winter 'floating' across the snow in an unspoiled winter wonderland.

If you've never tried snowshoeing before, now is the time to give it a go. No experience is required and we supply all the gear you need for a safe and comfortable trip to the mountains. Snowshoeing is a non-technical alternative to skiing or snowboarding; almost anyone can do it with minimal instruction or practice and it enables greater access to the landscapes beyond the ski fields.

As with all our guided walks, we keep our group sizes small and take a flexible approach to ensure we can accommodate everyone's abilities.

Our snowshoe season runs from early June until late October (snow dependent).

 

OUR SNOWSHOE TRIPS

We have a range of snowshoeing trips to suit everyone.

Snowshoe Adventure

Our popular Snowshoe Adventure is a half day trip with a little more walking involved and a gradual climb of 200m to make the most of the spectacular mountain scenery.

Snowshoe Discovery

Ideal for those new to snow, Snowshoe Discovery combines a gondola ride up Coronet Peak with an easy snowshoe walk to one of the best views in town. 

Heli Snowshoe

For a truly exhilarating alpine experience nothing beats our Heli Snowshoe. Just minutes from Queenstown, yet incredibly remote, your guide will lead you through the breath taking winter landscape of this untouched paradise on the ultimate snowshoe journey.

Private Guided Snowshoe Trips

We also offer privately guided snowshoe trips that can be specifically tailored for your needs. Easier trips such as our private Snowplay experience is ideal for family groups with young children, or if you're loo

king for a more challenging excursion just let us know what you're up for and we can tailor a bespoke snowshoe experience just for you. 

We're passionate about sharing our loc

al knowledge as well as our guiding skills, so while you're enjoying the winter landscape your guide will provide insights on the geology and history of the area and other points of interest along the way.
