Backcountry Hiking

This country was built for hiking.

With plenty of local tracks to choose from and farms to access, we can tailor a hiking experience to fit your needs.

A short car journey from Queenstown are many well known tracks providing fantastic hiking on well maintained groomed trails. Sam Summers Track, The Routeburn and 12 mile delta are popular and lovely tracks with beautiful native forest and wonderful views. Many of these tracks are of great historical importance to New Zealand, coming from the early Maori days of hunting Moa and retrieving Pounamu (greenstone). Later, gold miners and farmers also pioneered routes over the mountains in search of pasture and riches.

If you want off the beaten track, Adventure Central has great relationships with the local farmers, gaining us and you access to several high country stations around Queenstown. These big high country stations are a perfect place to get away from the hustle of Queenstown and take in the wilderness and remoteness of the country. Surround yourself in the “real” New Zealand, meet a few of the locals and enjoy the natural beauty and peacefulness. No people, no stress and no worries. Let us take you off the beaten track.

Hiking options can be included in a Queenstown Experience day or taken separately. Hiking trips are approximately 4 hours, door to door. Customised to suit.

Includes : All Transport door to door, Guide, Snacks, Refreshments, Lunch optional
