Queenstown, nestled beside the stunning Lake Wakatipu, lies at the intersection of seriously jaw-dropping scenery in every direction.

While here, you’ll have easy access to Milford Sound, the Routeburn and Hollyford Tracks, Coronet Peak Ski Park, Lake Wanaka and Lake Hayes, Ben Lomond, Skippers Canyon, Glenorchy, the Wakatipu Basin and so much more.

These natural wonders that encompass Queenstown are an incredible feature of any visit, and although each is full of picture-perfect viewpoints, scenic forest trails and hiking routes, rivers, birdlife and remote areas to enjoy, let’s not forget that Queenstown is also famed for being the ‘adventure capital of the world’. As such, if you do have any adrenaline-packed adventures or experiences to tick off your bucket list – this is the place to do it!

Queenstown is known for its countless bungee jumping sites off bridges, over canyons or into valleys, as well as skydiving, white-water rafting or jet boating down the beautiful Shotover River, heli-tours, mountaineering and climbing, off-road biking that can be as extreme or relaxed as you like, go-karting, paragliding, kayaking and more besides. Of course, you could always opt for an afternoon at the spa or round of lakeside golf, for something a little more serene.

Queenstown really is a world leader of adventure sports and fun outdoor experiences, and with such gorgeous surrounding scenery, great nightlife and lots of restaurants to look forward to each evening, its legendary status as a must-see New Zealand stop is certainly justified.
