Located on New Zealand's South Island, on the edge of Lake Wakatipu, Queenstown is surrounded by the spectacular Remarkables Ranges and has fast become the adventure capital of the world.
The Southern Hemisphere's premier four season alpine and lake resort, Queenstown is home to a host of high adrenalin activities on land, in the air and on water including skiing, sky diving, bungy jumping, jet boating, white water rafting, river surfing, tramping and four wheel driving.
From June through to October the mountains are covered in a blanket of snow which not only offers beautiful scenery but amazing conditions for alpine skiing. Each year thousands of tourists flock here to hit the slopes for downhill, cross-country or heliskiing.
Sitting on the edge of Lake Wakatipu, Queenstown is the ideal destination for scenic cruises or for something a bit more action packed, neighbouring Lake Hawea and Shotover River are perfect for jet boating and white water rafting.
Wine tours are also popular in New Zealand with the region boasting over 70 wineries which are known to produce some of the best wine in the world. Put your feet up and discover Queenstown a different way – on horseback. Many stables across Queenstown offer tours daily which can go for anything from two hours to two days.
