Queenstown, New Zealand
Add some action and adventure to your five night package and take a unique breathtaking ride through dramatic and narrow Canyons on the Shotover Jet, and hold on tight for Queenstown's only exhilarating full 360 degree spins. Then for the best views in the region head up the Gondola which offers a spectacular 220 degree panorama, with breathtaking views of Coronet Peak, The Remarkables mountain range and across Lake Wakatipu to Cecil and Walter Peaks. It's truly magnificent and awe-inspiring! Thrillseekers will find plenty to keep them busy too. Hurtle down the winding downhill Skyline Luge - it's the fastest fun on wheels! Take in the challenge of AJ Hackett's Ledge Bungy or Swing, or take off on a tandem parapente flight.
Enjoy a full day tour to the dramatic Milford Sound. The Milford Road (between Te Anau and Milford) is one of the finest alpine drives in the world. The scenery is exceptional, ranging from broad grassy flats, dense rainforest, and towering mountains through to glacial lakes and alpine herb fields. Milford Sound is a world-renowned natural wonder. Nowhere else in Fiordland do the mountains stand so tall, straight out of the sea. Luxuriant rainforest clings to sheer rock walls and waterfalls tumble hundreds of meters to the sea below. Whatever the fiord's mood - brooding and wet, or tranquil in the sunshine - it will inspire you.
Spend another afternoon among the boutique vineyards and spectacular scenery of Central Otago, a perfect introduction to the region. Visit four wineries in the Gibbston Valley, Cromwell and Bannockburn regions and enjoy a delightful platter style lunch at Carrick Winery restaurant. You will drive through the stunning Kawarau Gorge whilst learning about the early pioneering history of this rugged region.
