Owner description: "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.

“A great afternoon.”
Reviewed August 13, 2010

Peter was a great guide and made the afternoon really enjoyable. Would have loved to have done a full day hike so as to experience more of the fantastic scenery. Would definitely do again and take the kids next time.

“Queenstown the beautiful!”
Reviewed July 19, 2010

18th July, I went with Peter and a friendly Irish Mum and daughter, to the Remarkables for a snow shoe adventure. We left an overcast dismal day in Queenstown, drove through the cloud and spent the morning in brilliant sunshine. Peter kept us laughing the whole time but was very informative and helpful. His carved out seats in the snow, and morning tea service are second to none. Healthy Cookie Times???? The scenery was superb and the exertion level was low to moderate.

“Our favorite single part of an outstanding trip.”
Reviewed July 18, 2010

Words don't do justice to the beauty you will see on a day hike near Queenstown with Guided Nature Walks. Our guide Karen was full of knowledge about the local foliage and wildlife. She was told by our tour company, mistakenly, that we were in our 60s, so when she came to collect us at the hotel she was surprised. My wife and I are very active in our 40s and asked Karen to take us on a more challenging route. It was GREAT! She was also good with a camera and kindly took plenty of shots for us, which we love while vacationing.

If you get to New Zealand, be certain to hire Guided Nature Walks for a hike. You will not be disappointed!

“Routeburn done right”
Reviewed June 12, 2010

I was on a package tour so I wasn't sure what to expect from the walk that the agent booked for me and my friends. I had the best time walking the Routeburn with Peter. His expertise in the area and sense of humor definitely made the walk more fun and interesting. The scenery is amazing on its own, but definitely makes a difference to have someone along who has the in-depth knowledge. If I ever go back to NZ for other walks, definitely will be calling on Peter again.
