Queenstown is here to impress with scenic views and to uphold its name as the outdoor adventure capital of the country.
Get ready for some fresh air as you enjoy the high octane activities such as skydiving and canyon swinging that we’ve hand-picked for you. Naturally, there are a few more relaxing activities on the cards here as well, including wine and cheese tastings and relaxing cruises through Milford Sound.

When in Queenstown you shouldn’t pass up the chance for an adrenaline rush, and a skydive is one of the ultimate bucket list items you can tick off here.
Experience the feeling of freefalling for a minute as you tandem dive with an experienced guide above the city. This skydiving experience lets you choose between jumping from 9,000, 10,000 or 12,000 feet and you may even reach speeds of 200kph.
People often use Queenstown as a gateway into Milford Sounds.
This World Heritage Fiordland National Park features boat cruises around Mirror Lake to see Mitre Peak and 1,200-metre rock walls. Waterfalls and dense rainforest also make up the area of the Southern Alps and its size and beauty will leave you speechless.
Queenstown is home to world-renowned golf courses that give you a view as you play. From Jack's Point, you’ll be able to see Lake Wakatipu and The Remarkables mountain range.
Take time to practise on the 18-hole green before playing a round. Afterwards, relax in the clubhouse with a drink.
Searching for a different kind of adrenaline rush? Why not try one of Queenstown’s swings.
The Ledge is Queenstown's sky swing and will literally see you swinging 400 metres above Lake Wakatipu. As you fall, pull the release cord to add an extra bit of fun. You’ll begin to rock back and forth until you stop swinging.
Queenstown is not just about heart-pumping adrenaline fixes, it’s also a mecca for amateur and professional skiers and snowboarders.
Some of the country’s most popular snowfields are a short drive from Queenstown, including Coronet Peak, The Remarkables and Cardrona. Snowfields typically open from July to September.
Wine tasting is a must in New Zealand but if we had to choose just one, it would be in Queenstown. That’s because it’s home to the world's largest tasting of New Zealand’s wines.
Armed with a pre-loaded tasting card, you’ll be able to sample numerous different champagnes, sparkling wines, whiskies, ports and sherries. A guide will educate you on the region's wines while you sample them with cheese.
White-water rafting options are rife in Queenstown and you’ll have the option to raft class II and III white-water rapids with paddle techniques that your instructor teaches you beforehand.
No experience is necessary to ride down the rapids and afterwards you’ll often have the space to enjoy a hot shower and relax in a sauna.
What better way is there to see Queenstown than from above? There are plenty of options for you to take to the skies, but the Grand Circle Helicopter Flight, in particular, lets you soar through Wakatipu Basin and land in the Remarkables Range.
You’ll even get the opportunity to stand in the snow 1,528 metres above the city and see panoramic views.
Don’t miss the chance to ride up the Skyline gondola for views of Queenstown.
When on the top, enjoy a buffet lunch or dinner with guaranteed views of the city’s skyline while you feast.

finder.com.au is one of Australia's leading comparison websites. We compare from a wide set of major banks, insurers and product issuers.
finder.com.au has access to track details from the product issuers listed on our sites. Although we provide information on the products offered by a wide range of issuers, we don't cover every available product. You should consider whether the products featured on our site are appropriate for your needs and seek independent advice if you have any questions.
Products marked as 'Promoted' or "Advertisement" are prominently displayed either as a result of a commercial advertising arrangement or to highlight a particular product, provider or feature. Finder may receive remuneration from the Provider if you click on the related link, purchase or enquire about the product. Finder's decision to show a 'promoted' product is neither a recommendation that the product is appropriate for you nor an indication that the product is the best in its category. We encourage you to use the tools and information we provide to compare your options and find the best option for you.
The identification of a group of products, as 'Top' or 'Best' is a reflection of user preferences based on current website data. On a regular basis, analytics drive the creation of a list of popular products. Where these products are grouped, they appear in no particular order.
Where our site links to particular products or displays 'Go to site' buttons, we may receive a commission, referral fee or payment.
We try to take an open and transparent approach and provide a broad based comparison service. However, you should be aware that while we are an independently owned service, our comparison service does not include all providers or all products available in the market.
Some product issuers may provide products or offer services through multiple brands, associated companies or different labelling arrangements. This can make it difficult for consumers to compare alternatives or identify the companies behind the products. However, we aim to provide information to enable consumers to understand these issues.
Providing or obtaining an estimated insurance quote through us does not guarantee you can get the insurance. Acceptance by insurance companies is based on things like occupation, health and lifestyle. By providing you with the ability to apply for a credit card or loan we are not guaranteeing that your application will be approved. Your application for credit products is subject to the Provider's terms and conditions as well as their application and lending criteria.
