Thinking about taking a day off from skiing and doing some sight-seeing or activities? Are there any good mountain biking trails or white water rafting near this area? What's the best thing to do? Will be there in a few weeks. Thanks!
I answered a similarquestiona few days ago so hopefully this helps you a little.
For Queenstown here are my favourite things. 1. Doubtful sound cruise - less commercial.On your way back stay the night in Wanaka. 2. Do a helicopter flight with a landing in the snow. 3. The gondola and the Luge ride up there is pretty common to do but the ZIPTREK - this is awesome and i really enjoyed zipping on the lines with the awesome views of the mountains and lakes. 4. The Nomads- Lord of the Rings tour is pretty cool as suggested above even if you are not a lord of the rings fan. They also offer some awesome 4WD and quad bike tours. 5. There are some really fun pubs by the lake - not far fromt he Novotel Queenstown. If you need more suggestions let me know! about 10 years ago
