Welcome to Queenstown!
On arrival into Queenstown, you will be transferred to your accommodation where you can begin your adventure! Nestled on the shores of Lake Wakatipu and surrounded by towering mountains, Queenstown is one of New Zealand’s ultimate holiday destinations.
This sophisticated all-season town enjoys the best of both worlds offering authentic luxury experiences in beautifully natural settings hosted by our naturally warm and welcoming people. It may be the adventure capital of the world but it’s also home to an excellent food and wine scene as well as great shopping, hiking and endless opportunities to relax.
It’s just as easy to go fishing, golfing, gold panning or wine tasting as it is to bungy jump or sky dive. Famed for its international winter skiing profile and outdoor beauty, Queenstown is a brilliant destination to visit year-round. One thing is certain here: you won’t run out of things to do.
