Queenstown, the city in the mountains!

Located in the south-west of the South Island, Queenstown is a city for thrill seekers! Bungee jumping, rafting, parasailing, paragliding and skiing are some of the activities you will have the opportunity to experience if you go to Queenstown.

It is the ideal destination for winter sports in New Zealand: The Remarkables, Trebele Cone, Cardrona and Coronet Peak are all famous ski resorts that are accessible from Queenstown.

If winter sports aren’t your thing, don’t panic! You will also be able to swim in the hot water pools of Onsen, visit the Gibbston Valley vineyard and discover local wines or enjoy a magnificent sunset on Lake Wakatipu.

Lord of the Rings fan? Don’t hesitate to go to Glenorchy, one of the filming locations of the famous saga, only a 45-minute drive from Queenstown.
