About Queenstown

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!

Milford Sound is a world-famous natural wonder. It is formed by the force of glaciers and enjoys the reputation of “the eighth wonder of the world”. It is located on a glacial terrain within the Fiordland National Park in the southwest of New Zealand's South Island. The cliffs, emerged from the calm and dark waters, are steep and winding, with dense rainforests on the cliffs. And waterfalls plunge into the sea from hundreds of meters high over the cliffs. The water tour of Milford Sound is the main way to enjoy the fjord's beauty. Seals, dolphins, the downpours all year round and the mists all adds to its beauty. Surrounded by hills covered with snow, there are many small waterfalls formed by snow melting.
