Our guides know the hills around Queenstown like the back of their hands and are passionate about sharing Central Otago’s epic backcountry with you
Head Guide & Ops Manager
Rider, guide, adventurer, Amanda leads our heli-hike and heli-bike team as Head Guide, bringing to the role a lifetime of experience working in the mountains. From mountain bike coaching to ski patrol, adventure guiding to Search and Rescue, Amanda knows Queenstown's back country as well as the mountains in Wales she once called home.
Amanda says most of her time is spent adventuring - or planning adventures. Just a few of these have included swimming the Escape from Alcatraz, caving through the largest cave in the World - Son Doong - in Vietnam, heli-boarding in Alaska and generally hiking and biking in the brilliant backyard of New Zealand.
Our legendary second in command Nikki Cameron’s been hiking and riding - and hunting and fishing - in the mountains around Queenstown since 2005.
A former rafting, kayaking and snowboarding guide, Nikki loves nothing better than getting out into the mountains for a hike or bike.
