Queenstown is THE place to go for thrill-seekers. Located at an altitude of 1,220m in the region of Otago, this city has become one of the most popular spots for winter sports in the world. The ski areas covers four different mountain zones: Coronet Peak, The Remarkables, Cardrona and Treble Cone. Other than the many possible activities (bungee jumping, rafting, paragliding, etc.) available, the resort is also New Zealand's gastronomic capital. The wine-producing region bordering the mountains, where the country's famous Pinot Noir is produced, has contributed to its fame. The Skyline Gondola offers breathtaking views over Lake Wakatipu and the mountains bordering Queenstown. Moreover, you will also have the now-or-never opportunity to meet one of the local celebrities, the kiwi bird, in the Kiwi Birdlife Park.
