Welcome to the adventure capital of New Zealand
We're sure this city needs no introduction; Queenstown attracts Kiwis around the country for its adrenalin-pumping activities, ski fields, wellness experiences and epic scenery.
During winter the Cardrona, Coronet Peak, Treble Cone and Remarkables ski resorts are the main attractions, while Queenstown's proximity to marvellous hikes and Great Walks make it a tramper's delight in the warmer months. If you aren't afraid of heights give the Kawarau Bridge Bungy a try, or for something slightly less thrill-seeking take the Skyline Gondola up Bob's Peak to take in sweeping views of what is surely one of the most beautiful cities in the world.
There are spa and hot pools if you'd like to unwind, as well as cycling tours and wine tasting to be enjoyed. Nearby Arrowtown is splendid in Autumn, and Lord of the Rings movie buffs won't want to miss the landscapes around Glenorchy.
The city itself boasts a vibrant nightlife and restaurant scene, with plenty of gourmet food options to tantalise your tastebuds. Make the most of your time here, or use it as your base to explore all the sights and attractions of the rest of the South Island.
