The Remarkables are the iconic mountain range which looms above Queenstown and Lake Wakatipu. Located on the south-eastern shore of the lake they rise up sharply to create a dramatic backdrop. The Remarkables are a popular mountain wedding location with two landing spots: The Spur or just below Double Cone, the highest point of the range.
THE REMARKABLES SPUR
The helicopter lands just below the ridge line of The Remarkables Spur at just under 5000ft. Views are back across Lake Wakatipu and over to Cecil Peak. The area is relatively easy to get around with grassy terrain and some rocky outcrops. The ridge line creates a dramatic element in photos with Lake Wakatipu and surrounding mountains as a stunning backdrop.
THE REMARKABLES DOUBLE CONE
Double Cone is the highest point of The Remarkables ranges at approximately 7600 ft with the landing location just beneath. In winter it will most likely be in snow so although if can be difficult to walk around it makes for a spectacular ceremony location. It has expansive views across Lake Wakatipu and the surrounding mountains with a real sense of being on top of the world.
