What We Love About Queenstown

Queenstown is New Zealand's unofficial adventure capital. Thrill seekers can go bungee jumping off the Kawarau Gorge Suspension Bridge, jet-boating along the Shotover and Dart Rivers, and skydiving with above Lake Wakatipu. Head to Milford Sound to see the iconic glaciers New Zealand is synonymous with, or hop on a hot air balloon at sunrise to soak up breathtaking views of the region. Descend from the sky and cross waters aboard the historic TSS Earnslaw for a perfect view of Walter Peak, The Remarkables, and Queenstown's charming landscapes.

Originally, we could not make the trip due to the weather, but in the end we returned to Queenstown to book this activity. It was very nervous, because the skydiving in the afternoon did not know whether it was possible until noon that day. Fortunately, we could complete this life list at the end! Because of the price, there is no option to purchase a third-person shooting, but the coach will help with the shooting during the whole process, including recording some videos before the start to record the current feelings and feelings. It is a great itinerary and it is worth participating!

It is very suitable to take the cable car in the evening, go karting on the top of the mountain, and watch the sunset at sunset, you can have a panoramic view of Queenstown. It is recommended to buy more than three kartings. The first one is for beginners to practice the track more smoothly, and the subsequent track is more exciting. There are also many lazy bones, tables and chairs on the side of the track for resting and watching the scenery.

The activity is very tight. I always feel that I haven’t stayed in the ranch for long enough and I can’t enjoy it leisurely. I will help take pictures before boarding the boat. You can buy photos. However, because there are too many people, there will be no time to take pictures in the back, so if If you want to buy, it is recommended to line up early. Lunch is not bad, but the meat part needs to be used earlier, and there are empty plates in the back. You can sit near the piano on the return boat, and there will be grandma playing the piano and singing. It is very pleasant Memories of the boat ride.
