Moke Lake is one of our favourite Queenstown short walks offering alpine views on an easy lakeside trail

South Island, New Zealand

Moke Lake is a stunning two-hour circuit walk that follows the base of Moke Lake and is suitable for non-hikers seeking an easy alpine walk. Start by heading up into the mountains to Closeburn Station, before following boardwalks across grasslands, around the rural farms and ending up back at the base of the lake. See the stunning reflection of the surrounding trees and mountain landscape in the lake's water; a truly special sight that will surely be a highlight of your New Zealand journey. A private guide, transfers and picnic lunch are available on request, or when booked as part of our Best of Queenstown Walk from a Luxury Lodge.
