Queenstown Travel Guide

Surrounded by majestic mountains from all sides, Queenstown is located on the shores of Lake Wakatipu on New Zealand’s South Island. There is a clear division between each of the four seasons. Summer has blue skies and sunshine. Autumn hosts a riot of brilliant colors. Winter is cool and refreshing with the mountains covered in snow. Spring sees the return of blossoming flowers. Queenstown is often called New Zealand's "Adventure Capital". Queenstown's Kawarau Bridge is famous for being the birthplace of bungee jumping. Other than the extraordinary opportunity to go skiing and snowboarding in the winter, you can try bungee jumping, skydiving, canyon swinging, jetskiing, horseback riding and long-distance hiking in this natural paradise. Each and every one of these activities is sure to give you an adrenaline rush!

A must try delicacy in Queenstown which everyone will recommend which is the Fergberger. The secret behind this restaurant is to use hand-make ingredients, tender fresh meat with fresh produce every day. The amount of succulent meat, fresh veg and special sauce in the burger is so wholesome and splendid that every penny spent is well worth it. The shop is located at 42 Shotover Street, Queenstown 9300, New Zealand. #newzealand #queenstown #fergburger #food

Everyone has to try their Onsen hot pool when you are in Queenstown, New Zealand. Their idyllic cedar-lined hot tubs and a unique kiwi twist on a Japanese tradition, their exclusive pools are filled with pure water from the surrounding mountains which is heated to approx. 38.3 degrees to relax your body and soul. We received individual towel plus a complimentary drink and snack (we chose beer and ice cream) to enjoy during our rejuvenating soak. Not to forget the awesome view that will make your experience of the Onsen more wholesome. #newzealand #queenstown #travel #onsen
