Lake Hayes Loop
The Lake Hayes loop track is one that is popular with locals and visitors too! it’s a beautiful walk that surrounds Lake Hayes. If it’s a calm day, there are reflections of the area onto the lake which are truly spectacular. The two-hour walk winds around the lake edge and above the lake looking towards the Remarkables, it's up and down but most people find it pretty doable and you’ll be distracted by the scenery anyway!

Arrowtown River Trail
We’ve said it before and we'll say it again, no trip to Queenstown is complete without a drive out to Arrowtown. This leisurely 4.2km loop track takes you through beautiful woods and along the clear flowing river. Autumn is our favourite time to visit Arrowtown, the colours of the leaves are like something out of a watercolour painting and truly make your jaw drop. Winter is beautiful too, the river forms Ice and the trees are decorated in ice crystals. As long as you rug up (and bring one of Patagonia's famous Belgian hot chocolates with you), this is one for the photo album.
