Cheap Flights to Queenstown
Queenstown is New Zealand’s number 1 vacation destination for international visitors, and it is easy to see why. Queenstown is jaw-droppingly beautiful. It sits beside Lake Wakatipu with clear, turquoise and calm waters and above the town and lake rise the Remarkables, the majestic, snow-capped mountains. It’s the hub for adventure tourism- the first commercial bunjee jump was based at the Kawarau Bridge. There is so much to do from aerobatic flight to parapenting via jet boating, to white water rafting and mountain biking to fly fishing and much, much more.
It’s also a major centre for skiing and snowboarding. Its four main mountain skifields are Cardrona Alpine Resort, Coronet Peak, The Remarkables and Treble Cone. Cross-country is available at the Waiorau Snow Farm, near Cardrona village. And after a day in the snow, the après ski is hot. There are more than 200 bars and eateries, one for every 75 people, it is said. An hour west of Queenstown is Fiordland, New Zealand’s largest national park. Milford Sound is the best known of all of the fiords because it is unspeakably gorgeous.
Queenstown is a four-season destination. There really is no bad time to visit Queenstown. Sam Neill’s vineyard highly sought out. If you want a tour we recommend scheduling way in advance. The vineyard is about 2 miles from Clyde and 7 miles from Alexandra. The Pinot Noir is the speciality. There are several world-class golf courses within 20 miles of each other including Kelvin Heights, Millbrook and Jacks Point. /
