Check out this awesome video highlighting New Zealand's adventure capital!
Queenstown is the perfect place to base yourself for a New Zealand holiday full of adventure.
If you don't believe us, watch this video from the team at Destination Queenstown to find out about all the incredible activities on offer!
Now you're convinced, here are our 3 favourite activities for a trip to Queenstown:
1. Visit Glenorchy
At the top of Lake Wakatipu, Glenorchy is a sleepy little town surrounded by spectacular scenery. Take a drive out for the day and explore one of the many day walks, have some lunch at the local pub, and see if you can stand the bracing cold of a swim in the frigid waters of Lake Wakatipu.
2. Ride the TSS Earnslaw to Walter Peak
Take a cruise on the TSS Earnslaw steam ship up the lake to Walter Peak Station and enjoy a day of boating, eating and experiencing all that New Zealand high country farm life has to offer!
3. Take a cycling wine tour!
Hire a bike in Arrowtown and cycle out to the surrounding wineries for an afternoon of grape-ish delight! Producing some of the world's finest Pinot Noir, Queenstown is the perfect place for a lazy day of good food and wine.
