The Remarkables are arguably New Zealand’s most iconic mountain range. Jutting some 2300 metres into the sky from the southeastern shore of Lake Wakatipu, the mountains are unique among their counterparts on earth, running directly from north to south. For locals and tourists, the range is known among New Zealand’s top skifields, offering a wide range of terrain for those seeking the best in winter sport, whatever their skill level.
Popular activities for those visiting The Remarkables include a wide variety of snow sports and training programmes, as well as a number of opportunities to take in the sights of the mountain range from above. Helicopter and small aircraft tours and gondola rides are available, and for those with an appetite for thrills, there’s even a bungee jumping centre. There are also a number of tour operators providing an alternative look at The Remarkables – from the waters of Milford Sound, Shootover River Canyon and Lake Wakatipu itself.
