"EVERY STEP A STORY....”

It’s our privilege to take you into some of the most beautiful and spectacular areas in the Queenstown and Fiordland region to experience everything from glacial valleys and majestic mountains to beautiful lakes and pristine rainforest. Our friendly, knowledgeable local guides ensure you have the time to enjoy the whole experience nature has provided.

We’ve chosen our range of walks for their natural history, scenic beauty, remote locations and varied terrain. We’re proud of our company's reputation for providing friendly, informative and personalised guided walks for small groups, and working to make Guided Walks NZ the most memorable part of your New Zealand experience.

Why choose Guided Walks NZ? The answer’s simple – we’re the only guiding company permitted to walk "off track" in the National Park. This means we avoid the crowds and experience a true 'wilderness' walk, letting you see and touch the real New Zealand.

I did the Routeburn day walk - was actually hoping to do Rob Roy glacier walk, but that wasn't running, so I thought why not do Routeburn again, since it's so gorgeous. If you don't do much hiking, this kind of guided day hike would be a perfect way to get to see some of NZ's amazing scenery close up... More

Our guide was marvelous. From the morning she picked us up to our day trip ends. It was raining when we went. They provide us a complete raincoat, haversack, lunch (simply love the sandwich), walking stick. Gave us alot of info on the track. Highly recommended.

We did only short day walk around Lake Shore. The view is amazing. Sean is our tour guide. He is very nice and friendly. He had a good local knowledge. We learned a lot of information from him. Thank you for the hot chocolate and sandwiches. There was very nice taste . I would highly recommend to all people.

We did the one day walk on the Routeburn track on Dec 14 2015. You can definitely do this walk on your own but a local guide is great as they point out the terrain and local vegetation. Our guide was on time picking us up from our B&B and shared local commentary regarding the area along the drive up.... More

Kia ora Mimi, Thank you very much for your review and your recommendation. We love hearing our customers feedback on the commentary of our guides. They are all very insightful and have many stories to tell that someone wouldn't hear doing a walk themselves. Glad you were kept warm and dry with our gear. Take care.

Who looks for recreation and interesting holiday, he finds her in Queenstown. Near the city center can be seen in Skippers Canyon, Arrow Town-instead of Chinese Settlement, use fun jet boat Jet.

Basically we received a 1 hour jet boat ride, a 3 hour walk along a public-marked track and transfers. Guide was friendly and helpful enough but seemed eager to get home, it was rainy and cold though. Fun day but definitely not worth $460 per person. Sandwiches were nice. Would recommend doing the jet boat ride separately and doing a... More
