WHAT WE LOVE

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.
