Queensland & Fiordland holidays - Adventurous, thrilling and striking
Deceptively small, Queenstown packs a lot in to its relatively diminutive size, and is known as the adventure capital of New Zealand. Action-packed, there are myriad activities to choose from, from wine tours to skydiving. In contrast, surrounding the city is Fiordland - a pristine wilderness of glaciers, lakes and mountain ranges.
The ideal destination for thrill seekers and nature lovers
Queenstown is famous around the world as a paradise for thrill-seekers and adventurers. Of course that’s true, the city is a smorgasbord of adrenalin-fuelled activities, but thinking of Queenstown as one-dimensional could see you missing out on what makes it a truly special destination.
Nevertheless, if you need high-octane activities, you need look no further. You’ll find ample opportunities for sky diving and bungee jumping, plus a host of watersports from jet-skiing to windsurfing.
But look beyond the city limits for some of the most extraordinary beauty. The fantasy scenery makes a truly stunning backdrop for any activity, whether you’re taking a mellow walk through the countryside or getting your pulse racing with adventure sports.
Queenstown is also surrounded by the Fiordland- arguably New Zealand’s most stunning and virgin wilderness. If you’re into hiking and other nature-based activities there are few better places. You’ll find yourself surrounded by a palette of wonderful colours and landscapes to make your jaw-drop.
