Spending weeks in Queenstown is easy. The town is full of adventures and is New Zealand’s premier winter and summer mountain destination with endless activities. I stayed at the Onsen Hot Pools located in Arthur’s point, just 10 minutes out of Queenstown.
Places to visit
I started my day by exploring the town with coffee, shopping and relaxing lunch by the Lake. I strolled along the beach of Queenstown gardens, taking in the magnificent views of the lake and mountains. I then went to Shotover Jet which was quite exciting through the Shotover River Canyons. Then I took a scenic helicopter flight to the summit of the Skyline Gondola. Before returning, I attended the Kiwi Haka show that gave Maori Cultural Experience.
The next day I went to Milford Sound. One can take a flight and then a cruise over there. It is a picturesque destination where one gets to see greenery, waterfalls and some marine life. In the evening, I walked around and went to Fergburger where I had fish and chips.
The other day I went rafting on the Shotover River. The experience was breathtaking. The rafting trip ended in darkness as I rafted through the 170m long Oxenbridge Tunnel. I also visited the Nevis Bungy, the largest Bungy in New Zealand at 134m. One may substitute it for Skydiving or a Canyon Swing.
I also visited the conservation sanctuary, Kiwi Birdlife Park and had the chance to see the incredible Kiwis. The five-acre park is home to 30 native species of birds and animals. One can take a walk around for an hour or spend the day watching wildlife and flight shows. I then went to the famous Remarkable Mountain ranges that are the best slopes of the country. There are various terrain services available.
