Queenstown is the action-adventure capital of New Zealand. In winter, it is a haven for skiers, and in summer, the bright sails of paragliders dot the sky above the town. The picturesque resort community lies along the shores of Lake Wakatipu, backdropped by imposing peaks. A wealth of outdoor activities is available, from leisurely lake cruises and thrilling jet boat rides to farm visits, bush walks and backcountry fishing excursions. Queenstown is also a comfortable base for exploring the fjords, including the rugged grandeur of Milford Sound. Day flights can also be made to Mount Cook.
