Wild Walks

Wild Walks

A unique philosophy to hiking in New Zealand - Wild Walks by Aspiring Guides

Take the road less travelled. We guide only small groups (max 5) on our New Zealand hiking adventures. Let us take you on a truly "Wild Walk" - where no one else can. From seriously tough multi-day alpine treks to easier, family-orientated hiking and camping, we provide a true wilderness experience.

The wild and remote nature of New Zealand's landscape and weather means that, for most people, backcountry travel is limited to a few well established walking trails. While these popular tracks are often called "The Great Walks" they are not the best walks - just the popular ones!

Based out of Wanaka and Queenstown, our Wild Walks explore the lesser travelled corners of the Mt Aspiring National Park and the South West World Heritage Area - where the scenery is always spectacular, and the challenges many.

Come and join us for a Wild Walk in the unique NZ wilderness - join a scheduled trek or book a private trip now!
