Queenstown Trail offers multi-day adventures for hiking groups

Date Posted: 10/11/2012

Special interest groups visiting New Zealand’s popular walking and hiking destination of Queenstown can take advantage of a new network of trails suitable for all abilities.

Officially opened last month, the new 110-kilometre Queenstown Trail highlights the region’s stunning scenery, linking the group visitor attractions of Queenstown Bay, Frankton, Lake Hayes, Arrowtown and Gibbston ‘valley of vines’.

Multi-day adventures for groups

Group travel organisers planning to walk the trail during New Zealand’s summer season, can book a guided multi-day adventure with options including insight into the region’s flora, fauna, geology and history, plus helicopter and jet boat rides.

Suitable for walking groups of all abilities

Scenic short walks include a lakeside stroll around the Queenstown Gardens, hiking up Queenstown Hill to enjoy lake and mountain view.

The more challenging Ben Lomond Track will lead hiking groups on a day trip climaxing in 360-degree views of the region.

Adventurous groups can embark on a series of overnight and multi-day walks within reach of Queenstown.

Glenorchy, at the head of lake Wakatipu, is a 45-minute lakeside drive from Queenstown and the starting point for several multi-day hikes such as the Dart/Rees, Greenstone and Caples tracks as well as the Routeburn, one of New Zealand’s Great Walks.
