It doesn't get much better than this!

Recruitment for the 2020-21 season will open later in the year.

Ultimate Hikes take great pride in providing walkers from all over the world with a unique insight into the magic of New Zealand's wilderness, whilst ensuring its sustainability for the future.

This is your opportunity to be a part of that vision. Each year over one hundred and thirty seasonal staff are employed to maintain the high standard of service for which the company is renowned.

Employment with Ultimate Hikes would ideally suit those looking for work in a unique environment, whilst sharing this with our domestic and international guests. Seasonal employment is from late-October to mid-April. Positions are categorised as either being on-track, or off-track (the majority of which are based in Queenstown).

Expectations are high, but so are the rewards: remuneration is competitive and on-track employees are provided with accommodation and meals at a nominal cost. Where else can you be paid to work in an environment that is internationally recognised for its majestic landscapes, thick native forests and crystal clear waters!
