                        “Thank you for a wonderful adventurous week, for all the museli bars, the
                        great enthusiasm and service, the little anecdotes in sunny breaks, the friendly
                        atmosphere and the unforgettable impressions of the Southern Alps.”
                        Liane Jordan, Germany, Southern Alps Treks, Jan 2008.
The route provides a mixture of full day trekking in remote, untracked terrain, with some comfortable, shorter
tracks of a more relaxed nature. A private hut is accessed by helicopter, where we pitch tents under the
watchful eye of the resident, native keas. The antics of these unique alpine parrots will keep you amused
for hours. During the trip there is the opportunity to climb to the summits of two peaks, providing an
impressive panorama over the surrounding landscape. A fitting finale to this exciting trip is an exhilarating
heli-hike on the Remarkable Mountains, which form the picturesque backdrop to Queenstown.
