Queenstown is quite simply the adventure capital of the world.
Tucked into a picturesque bay on the calming shores of Lake Wakatipu and surrounded by jagged peaks, the magical feel of the town hits before you even touch down. The breathtaking aerial view of the region’s arresting scenery makes you want to get out there and experience it for yourself.
Queenstowners’ passion for adrenalin sports rubs off on visitors. Many leave having tried something they said they would never do. Personal discovery lies in the strangest of places and the town offers endless options: bungy jumping, skiing and snowboarding, whitewater rafting, tramping, mountain biking, paragliding, jetboating, and skydiving to list just a few.
Queenstown has its own unique brand of relaxation too. Hidden away in every corner are intimate bars, cafés and restaurants offering a sophisticated urban feel while exclusive spas offer luxurious pampering treatments.
It’s the soul-touching, ‘anything is possible’ atmosphere that gives Queenstown its edge. Add to this the endless action-packed days and some of the world’s best food and wine and you couldn’t find a more inspiring resort town.
