  • Discover native flora & fauna
  • Learn about New Zealand geography, history, and culture from local South Islander

Your hosts, Wildlight NZ, have exclusive access to Mt Alfred so you’ll be able to escape the crowds and have the entire mountain to yourself.

At the summit, soak up breathtaking 360 degree views of the Wakatipu region and its surrounds. Views of snow-capped peaks, braided river systems, sparkling lakes and ancient rain forest can be enjoyed from the summit, undoubtedly one of the world’s greatest viewing platforms.

Your adventure begins with a scenic drive from Queenstown along the beautiful Lake Wakatipu shoreline to the base of Mt Alfred. Take a 3 to 4 hour climb to the summit through beautiful farmland before reaching the summit and rewarding yourself with a cup of tea and hearty picnic lunch.

On the 2-3 hour return journey you’ll pass by alpine streams, glistening waterfalls and be surrounded by lush New Zealand rainforest.

Your experienced local guides will teach you about New Zealand’s conservation efforts, unique history and culture, and flora and fauna, while you explore some of the world’s most spectacular wilderness.
