The Remarkables, Queenstown – Mountain Weddings

The Remarkables mountain range is the iconic view of Queenstown and one of the first mountains that you will see as you step off the plane onto the tarmac. It is one of only three mountain ranges in the world that run directly North to South. It’s located right beside the airport so it is a quick flight up, but that does mean we can often aim to fly right up to sunset over the shorter days between April and September. There are two distinctive landing spots: Double Cone, at over 6,500ft, is rocky in the summer and covered in powdery snow in the winter. The Spur is just over 4,200ft, with sweeping views out over the lake and lots of different tussocky or rocky features to play in.
