Ben Lomond

A popular destination for outdoor adventurers, Ben Lomond is a mountain located near Queenstown, New Zealand. Visitors are rewarded with a magnificent view of Wakatipu Basin. The summit is truly a scenic experience, with soft tufts of windswept grass nestled amongst many layers of exposed rock. The observant explorer can spot many species of wildlife local to the terrain, including the gregarious kea parrot, the indigo tui, and the unique olive-green New Zealand bellbird. The region surrounding Ben Lomond, including the Remarkable Mountains, is perhaps most recognizable from its iconic portrayal in the Lord of the Rings films.

  • Enjoy a soaring view of Lake Wakatipufrom the summit of Ben Lomond of New Zealand’s longest lake, home to the long fin eel and the epic setting for Lothlorien, home of Tolkien’s Elves.
  • Explore the Douglas fir forests of Bob’s Peak, a popular extension of Ben Lomond and a local Queenstown hotspot for paragliding and ziplining.
  • Challenge yourself over the rugged New Zealand terrain by trekking one of the many trails on or around the rugged Queenstown butte, or take an unforgettable tour on a mountain-bike using the popular cycling routes.

Ben Lomond Mountain is located just north of Queenstown, in the Ben Lomond Scenic Reserve. The town itself is situated near the central bend in Lake Wakatipu. The mountain is accessible by mountain bike or on foot. A trek up and down Ben Lomond will take you close to a full day. There are designated areas along the hiking routes where mountain bikes cannot access, which makes walking up the mountain a little safer for those not saddled up on moving steel. The Ben Lomond Track is accessible from Skyline Access Road or One Mile Creek Walk.
