Queenstown Luxury Holidays

The perfect place for adrenaline junkies

High energy activity blended with relaxation

 

Luxury holidays in Queenstown take you to an idyllic resort town par excellence. With its proximity to the majestic Southern Alps Mountains, the striking Fiordland National Park, four serene lakes and more thrilling activities than anywhere else in New Zealand, Queenstown is the perfect place for an adventure.

Nestled alongside the tranquil Lake Wakatipu, the town offers a wide range of top-class accommodation in spectacular settings. Choose from exquisitely appointed 19th-century townhouse hotels, peaceful lakeside resorts and picturesque hillside lodges, all of which afford superlative views over the nearby Remarkables mountain range and the stunning lake.

Got a taste for adventure?

A haven for adrenaline-junkies, Queenstown is not known as the ‘adventure capital of the world’ for nothing. Take the Skyline Gondola, which soars 400 meters above the town to the observation point on Bob’s Peak. Bungee jump, luge or even swing off the top of it for even more spectacular vistas.

For similar high-octane kicks, be sure to do the ‘Awesome Foursome’: a bungee jump, a speed boat ride, a helicopter ride and a whitewater rafting experience. Take a trip out onto Lake Wakatipu where you can sail by steam boat, jet ski or ‘Hydro Attack’, which soars above and below the water at speeds of up to 80km per hour. If you’re after something more relaxing, the ‘reverse aquarium’, or Underwater Observatory Boat, allows you to meet the fascinating marine life that has made its home in this impressive lake through its glass bottom.

Don’t miss the chance to take a trip to the nearby Sounds. Milford and Doubtful are vast, awesome fiords. Carved over millennia by molten glaciers, these geological forms will leave you speechless with their breathtaking beauty. You can explore them with a top-of-the-range boat cruise or a scenic helicopter flight and catch sight of the stunning wildlife and waterfalls that slither down the cliff faces.

Relaxation

After you’re done exploring, slip into a comforting hot tub at one of the many relaxing spas in Queenstown. Therapeutic hot pools and massages are the perfect antidote to all the extreme experiences you’ll find here. Once you feel refreshed, it’s time to hit the town and experience the local nightlife.

No luxury holiday in Queenstown is complete without going on a local wine tour. Pinot noirs are particularly famous in the region and make a fantastic accompaniment to many of the fine dining options in the area.
