New Zealand - Queenstown & Franz Josef/Fox Glacier


Queenstown is the adventure capital of New Zealand and probably of the world! It is a fabulous town with non-stop action. Its location is stunning…right on Lake Wakatipu with breathtaking mountain scenery of the Remarkables, Coronet Peak and other lovely mountains. Queenstown has been blessed by the beauty and magic of nature!

It is a perfect blend of stunning scenery, water sports on Lake Wakatipu, jet boating and white water rafting on the Shotover river, sky diving, para gliding, trekking and is one of the foremost skiing, snowboarding and heli skiing destinations in New Zealand. Queenstown also has some amazing golf courses.

The town itself is a quaint mixture of adventure operators, cafes, unending queues for the best burgers at Fergburger, fine dining restaurants and interesting shops and boutiques. 4 to 5 days just fly by!

Queenstown has almost everything within walking distance, so it is very easy to get around with or without transport. The Queenstown Winter Festival is a carnival of snowboard and ski competitions, concerts, markets and firework displays. A great time to visit Queenstown!

Enjoy a memorable authentic farmyard tour that includes a kiwi barbecue lunch and a guided horse trek or maybe a quad bike ride. Another unforgettable tour is a visit to both Milford Sound and Doubtful Sound by helicopter. The breathtaking scenery, and the peace and tranquility are to be experienced!

There are some luxury lodges and boutique B&Bs to stay and enjoy this wonderful carnival town. Your stay in Queenstown will be etched in your memory forever and make you want to visit New Zealand again and again!
