Hiking Experience & Fitness Levels

The Mackenzie Alpine Hiking Tour offers hikers a wilderness hiking experience, where there are no groomed trails .Your guides follow a wonderful route between the huts, which offers a more natural ease of footing within the backcountry terrain and landscapes.

The terrain in this incredible part of the Mackenzie Backcountry is a mix of gravel river bed, golden tussock grasslands, rocky scree and uneven surfaces.

You will be hiking through rougher terrain that requires more of a sure footed hiker.
