Driving to Cardrona
Cardrona is just a short hop over the Crown Range from Queenstown Airport, which makes life easy if you need to pick up a rental car & drive straight here.
Turn off from the Cardrona Valley Road, across the highway from the Cardrona Distillery/Cardrona Bra Fence. We are located 12km up an unsealed alpine access road so please take your time & maintain two-way traffic at all times.
For summer, drive to the top of the Cardrona mountain road & park right beside our Base area. There’s plenty of parking up top – ask one of our friendly team if you’re not sure where to pull up your wagon!
Cardrona Toll Gate Shuttles
This summer we’re offering shuttles from the Cardrona Valley to the top of the Cardrona mountain road. Every operational day you can jump on a return shuttle from the Toll Gate (bottom of the road) for a day of hitting the trails.
