Don’t Miss These Must-Do Activities in Queenstown

Don’t Miss These Must-Do Activities in Queenstown

The small town of Queenstown has a lot going for it. It's on the shores of Lake Wakatipu, is surrounded by the Remarkables mountain range, and has year-round attractions.

Start with a tour of the town and surrounding areas. Private and small-group tours are a personalized way of getting to know Queenstown, while tours by Segway let you cover more ground. Helicopter tours are a luxurious way of seeing the sights.

In winter, Queenstown is convenient to the Otago ski fields. The rest of the year, enjoy outdoor and adventure activities such as white-water rafting, hang gliding, hiking, skydiving, and bungee jumping. Travelers seeking a more relaxing experience can take a day tour to the Central Otago wineries, famous for their pinot noirs.
