About Queenstown

Surrounded by majestic mountains from all sides, Queenstown is located on the shores of Lake Wakatipu on New Zealand’s South Island. There is a clear division between each of the four seasons. Summer has blue skies and sunshine. Autumn hosts a riot of brilliant colors. Winter is cool and refreshing with the mountains covered in snow. Spring sees the return of blossoming flowers. Queenstown is often called New Zealand's "Adventure Capital". Queenstown's Kawarau Bridge is famous for being the birthplace of bungee jumping. Other than the extraordinary opportunity to go skiing and snowboarding in the winter, you can try bungee jumping, skydiving, canyon swinging, jetskiing, horseback riding and long-distance hiking in this natural paradise. Each and every one of these activities is sure to give you an adrenaline rush!

Strait/Fjord
Milford Sound is a world-famous natural wonder. It is formed by the force of glaciers and enjoys the reputation of “the eighth wonder of the world”. It is located on a glacial terrain within the Fiordland National Park in the southwest of New Zealand's South Island. The cliffs, emerged from the calm and dark waters, are steep and winding, with dense rainforests on the cliffs. And waterfalls plunge into the sea from hundreds of meters high over the cliffs. The water tour of Milford Sound is the main way to enjoy the fjord's beauty. Seals, dolphins, the downpours all year round and the mists all adds to its beauty. Surrounded by hills covered with snow, there are many small waterfalls formed by snow melting.

Trip Moments

Tango   
360 There is no dead end in the beautiful Queenstown, playing more and more big shots! Some people say that the beauty of Queenstown is 360 degrees without a dead end. When you touch it, you feel it yourself. Driving in the morning on the road, there are high and low squats, Wakati on the left. Puhu is as clean as a mirror, slightly corrugated, surrounded by mountains, covered with green, bright yellow, khaki, gray and dark red vegetation. Some distant mountains are indigo, and the mountain can clearly see the snow. Covered, they are reflected in the lake water, and with different road conditions, the sky is different and presents an ever-changing landscape. Best travel time The natural beauty of Queenstown is perfectly combined with the lively town. The spring and autumn seasons are full of color and are most suitable for photography. In addition, the climate temperature of spring (September-November) and autumn (March-May) is the most suitable stage for outdoor activities. Because Queenstown is suitable for skiing and other winter sports, the peak period of travel is from late December to mid-January. If you visit during this period, it is best to book the room in advance.
