About
Lake Alta Hike is the perfect half day hike in Queenstown!  Lake Alta is a glacial lake tucked up in the Remarkables mountain range and is the perfect destination for a breath-taking half-day hike featuring dramatic views overlooking Queenstown. We begin by driving up to the Remarkables ski field which gives us a head start before we make our way up to Shadow Basin through alpine herb fields, we then traverse across the ridge line which has spectacular views across the valley before we drop down to Lake Alta.

My husband and I chose to do the hike on our last day in NZ and it was a great experience.
Jamie picked us up promptly and guided us up and down the Remarkables to Lake Alta. He was really knowledgeable with the area, geography, nature.
We enjoyed his tour and a good chat.
The hike as such is gorgeous and definitely something we would recommend.

We chose a half a day hike and an afternoon of wine tasting thanks to the suggestion from Owen during our booking talks and it did not disappoint!

Jamie took us to three wineries, all equally delicious :) We enjoyed stopping for a Taco Lunch too!!

100% recommended!
Thank you Jamie!

We booked a private hike for my wife and I up to Alta lake. Lee was excellent with communication before hand which was great given we were coming from overseas. Lisa was our guide and she was fantastic. The hike up to Lake Alta was easy and the hike up to the top of the Remarkables was awesome, challenging and well worth the view.
I'd use these guys again in a heart beat. They made it easy for us to enjoy the view and scnery while giving great info and insight into the local area.

thanks guys for an amazing day!
Cheers
Paul and Marina
