Experience soaring mountain peaks, cascading waterfalls, vast valleys and shimmering lakes

Begin your journey with a spectacular scenic drive to Glenorchy. Renowned for being “one of the most beautiful drives in the world”, the road hugs the turquoise shores of Lake Wakatipu as it winds through valleys and around mountain peaks.

Relax in the comfort of your Land Rover Discovery or Mercedes van and enjoy the flexibility of stopping wherever and whenever you like for photo opportunities or rest stops.

The beech forest signals the beginning of Mount Aspiring National Park, where we start walk along the renowned Routeburn Track. Your personal hiking guide will navigate you through the ancient forest that rests alongside the picturesque Routeburn River before heading up to Bridal Veil Waterfall.

Using a swing bridge, we’ll traverse across the roaring canyon below and make our way towards the tranquil Routeburn Flats. Pausing to take in the vast open wilderness of these alpine flats, we’ll stop to enjoy a gourmet picnic lunch, while learning about the rich Maori history, birdlife, flora and fauna.

If you’re feeling adventurous, we can continue hiking through more spectacular beech forest up towards Routeburn Falls Hut, pausing to take in breathtaking views across the Routeburn Flats and Humboldt Mountains.

Our local guides love being able to tailor each tour to suit your interests, tastes and abilities. Contact us to customise your iconic adventure on one of New Zealand's Great Walks.

Great Day (Queenstown Wine and Cardrona Distillery Tour)

Our family of four booked a wine tour with Lee in late December 2019. Lee was extremely flexible and responsive to our group - his kind and friendly demeanor made the tour seem more like a day out with a friend rather than a tour. The tour (ie Lee) was full of interesting information, laughs and friendly exchange coupled with excellent locations to visit - the day was excellent from start to finish. Thank you, Lee!!1

Tour of a Lifetime! (Untouched back country heli tour

My husband and I did the "Untouched Heli and Hike Tour" and it was absolutely the highlight of our entire trip. The crew was is top notch, which made the experience even better. Highly recommend any tour which will take your to the Middle Earth Waterfalls, this by far was the most amazing place / landscape i have ever seen. You got chills walking through this area! It was out of this world! Thanks again Lee for the amazing tour! If we are ever in Queenstown again, I know we'll be in touch!

Amazing trip to Milford Sound

Steve was a fantastic host and driver. Every part of the trip to Milford ran to time. Steves timing was impeccable resulting in crowd free stops at spectacular stops along the way. The drive included very informative commentary about features along the way as well as interesting history and modern interruptions related to NZ. The lunch provided was delicious. I would recommend alpine luxury tours to anyone wanting the personal touch to a tour whilst being kept informed along the way and have a bit of a laugh.
