Whether you are interested in the slopes, the thrills or the comforts Queenstown has something for everyone.
Queenstown is rated as one of the world's top holiday spots & our lodge is nestled in the heart of the region – whatever you want to do, nowhere is too far away!
Queenstown is famous for its aerial thrills. The area offers everything from bungee jumping off Kawarau Bridge to the Shotover Canyon Swing to paragliding, or even a helicopter ride to the Milford Sound glacier. Or for something on ground level, there is also jet boating, quad biking in the Queenstown hills, luging and numerous cycle trails. If you are after something slower paced there is also plenty to do from a riding the Gondola up the mountains for a meal to taking a guided horse trek through the iconic landscapes of Middle Earth.
Afterwards, if you need to unwind, visit the Onsen Hot Pools Retreat and Day Spa is just 10 mins drive from the centre of Queenstown.
