Our very personal hike, led by Mary of Bushbash, was an intimate look into untrampled forests of Fjiordland National Park. Going on trapping trails, we had the privilege of seeing animals and plants in a forest visited by few hikers. The fantail that followed us...More

With all the "mainstream" activities you have around queenstown, this one is really special. If it is the wilderness, the views or just a good walk in the untouched nature that your heart desires, that's the activity for you. Literally go off track into the...More
