Our Wye Creek Weekend Wander is the perfect opportunity to escape into the rugged backcountry above Queenstown in a short weekend trip.
Snowshoeing up into the secluded Wye Creek valley, we feel small in comparison to the dramatic landscape that surrounds us. As we approach AC’s comfortable seasonal camp, we spot the dramatic frozen waterfalls cascading above, which are famed as New Zealand’s best ice climbing crags. It’s a beautiful area to explore before returning to a cosy camp and tasty evening meal. After a hearty breakfast, the following morning we hike back down the valley and return to the bright lights of Queenstown.
