Beautiful day. ended up carrying our coats as the weather was so nice. Thanks Bjorn for having us on the trip. These guys have got everything you need gear wise (we even borrowed hats and gloves, not that we needed them in the weather we had). we'd never done anything like this before so it was very exciting for us...

I was worried when I first booked snowshoeing as my daughter is only 5 years old and I have only taken her to beaches, cities and never snowing mountain tops, let alone there was a storm today, our guide was Peter, an enthusiastic man from kent, England, he made our adventure so much easier than I was ever anticipated!

My friend and I booked the snowshoeing not really knowing what to expect. We both absolutely loved it and it was definitely one of the highlights of our trip to Queenstown. The views were incredible and it's such a great way to see the mountains without skiing or showboarding. I think this is an activity that anyone would enjoy. Jerry... More

The Routeburn track was an easy walk, good for family and beginners by an expert guide. The scenery is stunning and is definitely recommended. A must do when in Queenstown.

I did two activities with Guided Walks - the Routeburn track, and snowshoeing. Both times was taken by our guide, Jamie, who is incredibly knowledgeable and easy to chat to. Having grown up in Queenstown he knows every hike, mountain, and interesting fact about the area. The Routeburn was an incredible day - the weather was perfect, and we hiked... More

My husband & I recently had the pleasure of showshoeing on the slopes of The Remarkables. It was our first time seeing snow and this was an experience we planned and booked from Australia with Guilded Walks & Snowshoeing NZ. Our guide was Jerry and he definitely didn't disappoint! We were the only ones on the walk and Jerry couldn't... More

Great half days activity. A brilliant way to be on the snow without being able to ski. It can make you be out of breathe at times but the instructor is mindful of everyone's pace. It is great to go on the mountains where skiers and boarders are banned. With the sun shining, blue skies, beautiful views and the peacefulness.... More

I did a guided walk in Queenstown with a group of friends, it was a fantastic learning experience and thoroughly entertaining. Pete is a very knowledgeable guide with a great sense of humor! I would recommend to anyone interested in the outdoors and looking for something a little different to do. Cant wait to try some more experiences with them.

I am not a skier, but was thrilled to find this fantastic snow shoe walk. Peter is a great guide, knows the area extremely well and is focused on have fun while being safe. This would be great for the whole family to do together, or on your own the way I did. A half day is great to try... More

Having looked at the Remarkables longingly on many occasions, it made a pleasant change to be walking on them. You get to enjoy their stunning beauty, off the beaten track & without flying down them on a board or skis. Our Guide, Jerry was very informative, helpful & considerate; stopping regularly to check if everyone was ok, needed a rest... More
