Welcome to Queenstown

While thousands of people move to the city in winter to enjoy skiing and snowboarding, Queenstown is also a wonderful place to visit in the summer. As the adventure capital of New Zealand (sorry, Rotorua!), There is so much to do here, no matter what you enjoy. From bungee jumping with all action, skydiving, jet and paragliding tours, tasting of calmer wines, lakeside walks and cruises, this is a city that is always alive. The location of Queenstown means it is also a great base to explore - nearby Arrowtown, Cromwell and Wanaka are all within easy walking distance for day trips, so there is plenty to explore to and around Queenstown in the summer months .
