We joined the above day walk tour during Easter Monday. Flip, a very knowledgeable lovely lady, is our guide and she pick us up at our Queenstown apartment in a comfortable van. There were only 2 couples on that tour so it felt private. I say it is a must do activity while you stay in Queenstown. It is not... More

My husband and I took the day hike on the Routeburn track with Bijorn. Very nice day. We hiked to the first hut and back, about 10-12 miles. Very easy--flat and very little elevation. Because of the dry weather, not too much waterfalls or other water activity, but a fun, nice day out in the woods. Periodically, Bijorn would draw... More

Went snow shoeing up the Remarkables & it was stunning & breath-taking sight as we went up all the way beyond the ski area, walk over a frozen lake & catch our breath at an ice cave. Truly stunning & educational.

What a great way to spend our Sunday, we were lucky enough to have the owner Peter as our guide and we had a small group. It was a wet and rainy day but what a great way to see this area. They also supplied some great rain jackets for us. Peter is extremely knowledgeable about the area, plant life,... More

I did the lakeside half day walk and the information about the flora and fauna was top class. As a birdwatcher we found several good birds in the trees on the walk. Morning coffee etc sat by the lake was a treat.

We hiked the Routeburn Track and couldn't believe the absolute beauty of trip. It was only a day trip up to the flats and back where we had one of the most scenic lunches of my life. My wife and I decided that our guide Carl was the best overall guide on our honeymoon as he was extremely informative about... More

We spent a good part of the day walking through a 1000 year old forest. It was breathtaking, beautiful and quiet. The guide was knowledgable and funny as he brought the forest to life for us. It was an experience of a lifetime.

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
