“Step into the back country with one of our experienced alpine guides. A three-hour snowshoe hike exploring varied mountain terrain and the most majestic alpine vistas”.
The Snowshoeing Adventure is a small group tour takes you on an ascent up into the Lake Alta cirque surrounded by inspiring peaks. There you can walk on a frozen lake, explore snow caves and have a great picnic lunch. The views from here are stunning!
This takes about 6 hours return to Queenstown with approx. 4 hours on the snow and can be tailored to the fitness of your group. If you want to head for the peaks we suggest you opt for a private departure. There is a gradual climb to get into the lake, so a moderate level of fitness is required. Minimum child age 8 years.
Have fun expanding snow caves and carving your own ‘snow chair’ to relax in while you enjoy a refreshing hot drink and delicious lunch.
Much of the equipment required is provided and courtesy transport from most Queenstown accommodation is included. “If you can walk you can snowshoe” so there are no excuses!
This tour is a fantastic snow experience with a bit of difference. If it sounds like something you would like to experience, get in touch with our Queenstown i-SITE team so they can arrange this wonderful day out for you.
