Get ready to experience a gorgeous place in New Zealand- a region where the scenery is breath-taking and the activities adventurous in nature. Pack your bags and head over to Queenstown, the “Adventure capital” and “action place” of New Zealand. We promise you a holiday with plenty of action packed in. There are some interesting and exciting activities that are create magnetism in Queenstown; there are plenty of things to do in Queenstown New Zealand:
Do you love the thrill of bungee jumping? From the old Kawarau Bridge that is situated on the outskirts of Queenstown, the adventure seeker can get the bungee cord adjusted according to body weight, and jumps off for an exhilarating drop of nearly 43 metres. You can also head to the Nevis Arc, the Nevis Bungy, The Ledge sky swing, and the Ledge Bungy for a similar experience. The Nevis Bungy promises a thrilling cable car jump, you must try it out!
The jet boats are another exciting experience and the Kawarau Jet and Shotover Jet. The boats do not need a lot of depth to zip through, the ride is adrenaline-charged and a pleasurable activity. The jet boats will zip across the waters at a super-fast speed and will surely take your breath away with sharp 360 degree spins. Sliding through the narrow gorges and slicing through the waters will provide a nerve wracking experience.
Small water trickles, rock faces, boulders or huge spread out spans of water, boat rides can give you thrill anywhere. You can manage to stand out and feel chilly breezes, though the warm handrails will add just a tad sense of warmth to your body.
Ski resorts may not provide glittery shine of white snow in summer months, but they do offer the spectacular view from the The Remarkables and Coronet Peak. All you have to do is take the chair lift and reach your destination. In winters, resorts are the ideal holiday destination as they will not disappoint you because of the zipping ski sports.
About 20 minutes away from Queenstown is an old gold mining town with a historical significance, called the Arrowtown. At one time beneath the Arrow River lay loads of gold and the town sits on the Arrow River. Take to the well maintained but “old feeling” roads and we promise you a close brush with history and well preserved historical buildings. You can get rid of the tiredness pangs by checking into one of the cafes and shops and relieving that parched throat and starved stomach.
If you are not very fond of the thrilling and zipping rides then avoid a jet boat and go to the Lake Wakatipu for a Steam boat cruise. The guided tour will take you to the Walter Peak high country farm. Observe the sheep farm and enjoy the scenery for a relaxed and well-spent day.
Another exciting and dangerous ride awaits you. The Skipper’s Canyon is dangerous and the gorge is an amazing experience. You may be astonished but the famous Hollywood flick “Lord of the Rings” has many scenes from this area.
The Skyline Gandola , Bob’s Peak, or just a race on the concrete tracks can leave the visitor addicted to more fantasy and thrill!
