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. This means we avoid the crowds and experience a true 'wilderness' walk, letting you see and touch the real New Zealand.

Guided Walks since 1868

We had a great time on our half day snowshoe. Peter our guide was both entertaining and informative. We were a little concerned about the weather before we went but Peter made us feel very comfortable & safe. He took us above the ski fields where the wind howled and the snow swirled. All a wonderful experience for people who... More

I did a full day Snowshoeing adventure recently (09Aug) and it was fantastic. A real novice when it comes to skiing or snowboarding so I wanted to experience the snow of Queenstown in another way. This was the answer to my prayers and the recent BIG dumps of powder snow made it even better. Peter was such a fantastic guide,... More

We went on a half-day snowshoeing excursion with Peter in the Remarkables, near Queenstown and we very much enjoyed it. Peter, our very kind fun guide, came to pick us up at the YHA where we were staying and took us up to the ski slopes in the Remarkables. We had a little stop on the way to take pictures... More

I am not a skier or snowboarder but I love Queenstown in the winter for the amazing scenery, cold and snow, so to find this attraction on offer for non skiers absolutely made my holiday there a few weeks ago. Marcus was our guide for the day (I did a full day trip and we fondly called him our sherpa!)... More

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. Natalie and Leon-Perth WA

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,... More

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.... More

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... More
