Set in the backdrop the dramatic Southern Alps and on the shores of the panoramic Lake Wakatipu in New Zealand’s Otago Region is Queenstown, dubbed as South Island’s premier four season lake and alpine resort, the Adventure Capital of the World!
Definitely one of the most beautiful places on Earth, Queenstown’s awe-inspiring scenery and vibrant energy make it a favorite destination for nature and adventure lovers.
Go skiing or snowboarding in Treble Cone, Cardrona, Coronet Peak or The Remarkables; hiking or tramping in Queenstown Hill, Ben Lomond, Jack’s Point, Mt Alfred Summit, Glenorchy Area or Routeburn Track; bungy jumping in Kawarau, The Ledge, or The Nevis; mountain biking in Queenstown Bike Park, Rude Rock, Coronet Peak Trails, Skippers Pack Track, Seven Mile Bike Park, Four Lakes Loop, Slip Saddle or Gorge Road Jump Park; ride the shotover jet at Shotover River Canyon; eat, wander, relax, chill and enjoy all that Queenstown offers.
This view of the downtown overlooking Lake Wakatipu and Double Cone Peak is taken from Skyline Queenstown at the foot of Ben Lomond Scenic Reserve, an easy ten minute walk from the downtown. Skyline Queenstown offers family friendly activities such as Gondola Ride and The Luge all set against this panoramic view.
The possibilities are endless in Queenstown! And yes, I have to agree, this is among the most beautiful, adventurous and vibrant places on Earth!
