Romantic Things to Do in Queenstown

Romantic Things to Do in Queenstown

In Queenstown, the turquoise waters of Lake Wakatipu and the snow-capped Remarkables provide the perfect backdrop for romance. Here are a few ideas for couples planning a getaway to the gateway to New Zealand’s nature.

Soar on a Helicopter to a Private Picnic

There are few things more romantic than taking a helicopter ride to picnic on a glacier. Take a scenic flight for aerial views of Lake Wakatipu, the Richardson Mountains, Cecil Peak, and Fiordland National Park. Tours typically touch down on a scenic plateau, or near a glacier, for a private picnic for two. Add in some Champagne or a cruise on Milford Sound for an extra special day.

Fine Dining with a View

Take the gondola to the Stratosfare Restaurant—located at the summit of Bob’s Peak—to soak up views of the Remarkables, Coronet Peak, and Lake Wakatipu. Enjoy a romantic meal and stay to stargaze after dark. Or, board a vintage steamship for a cruise across Lake Wakatipu to Walter Peak High Country Farm; packages typically include a BBQ meal and drinks.

Enjoy an Overnight Cruise

There’s something so romantic about being on the water, especially overnight. Options include crossing Milford Sound to Harrison Cove, or cruising the length of Doubtful Sound. Enjoy the privacy your own cabin as you take in panoramic views, and enjoy a meal and drinks; most tours give you the chance to explore on a kayak or tender.

Savor the Flavors on a Wine Tasting Tour

Wine is an important part of celebrating romance. Spend the day soaking in the views of the Central Otago region while sampling its fine wines, typically accompanied by cheese and gourmet platters. Leave the driving to someone else so you can focus on the experience, and each other.
