Thrill Seeking

Queenstown is famous for its 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.
