Queenstown New Zealand
Queenstown is a very touristic town all year round - summer through winter. This is the destination for South and North Island skiers and snowboarders alike. This is the number 1 international destination for adventure sports and activities. Jump from a plane, throw yourself from a bridge, or just chill out by the lake - the options are boundless. Queenstown is a 45-minute flight or roughly 6-hour drive from Christchurch. Nearby areas of interest include Milford Sound within Fiordland, Wanaka, Cromwell, Glenorchy, and Arrowtown - all part of the extraordinary Southern Lakes region. The Waitaki Valley and Mount Cook each are about three hours' drive from Queenstown.
