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

I've been to Queenstown 3 times and I've gone on a tour with these guys 3 times…that means, I've seen them every single time I'm here. They are the reason I come to Queenstown. Their staff are friendly, the tours are fantastic! and they are just the best group to go with. Pete (the owner) took us on our tour... More

Half day snow shoe hike at the remarkables off the ski field and into back country was stunning. Up hill climb at first but worth the effort. I can't ski at all and felt very comfortable hiking in snow shoes. If u can hike u can sine shoe. Our guide bjorn was full of great yarns and really looked out... More

Pete was very knowledgeable and a great laugh while on the trip. Would recommend this to anyone who wants to try camping out in the wilderness because all the things you get shown could help you better than having Bear Grylls with you! Thanks Pete

I picked heli snow shoeing for my 50th birthday treat last week. Got dropped on the ridge of Cecil Peak and snow shoed upwards! Our guide was Jerry, very friendly and chatty, pointed out the mountains on view. It was fantastic being up there on a blue sky day!

Worth doing if you want to visit the snow but are not interested in skiing. Our tour guide Peter who was very knowledgeable and experienced took us up The Remarkables, past the skiers and snowboarders (we felt like the new kids on the playground) up to 1800m above sea level. Once at the top we stopped to take a break,... More
