OVERVIEW

Come see beautiful Lake Wakatipu from above at the top of the Remarkables range!  Take a hike up through alpine tundra and beautiful ridge lines to gain great views of Queenstown, Lake Wakatipu, and the surrounding areas.  

 

The trip begins near Remarkables ski field and hikes up to the ridge, where you can get spectacular views of the surrounding mountains in Queenstown.  From here, you can see the impact of ancient glaciers on the landscape - let your imagination go wild picturing what the region looked like covered in ice and snow thousands of years ago.  You'll hike along the ridge and through native bush, where you'll have the opportunity to see unique local flora and fauna, and then up above the top of the ski field.  This is an ideal spot to stop and take some photos and enjoy the views of the enormous Lake Wakatipu on one side and the exquisite glacial Lake Alta on the other.
