Queenstown Adventure in Shoulder Season
Queenstown is often called the world’s adventure capital, and for a good reason. This small town is located on the shores of Lake Wakatipu, surrounded by stunning mountains, and offers a wide range of adventure activities and vibrant nightlife. From the Skyline night luge to bungy jumping to skydiving. For those looking for a more relaxed pace, there are plenty of opportunities to take in the beautiful scenery, such as a scenic flight via helicopter or plane. Then, slow it down even more with a scenic cruise on Lake Wakatipu or a hike along Lake Hayes. When visiting in the shoulder seasons, you may see fickle weather and need to pack a few more clothes, but you will be rewarded with fewer tourists and possibly save some coin on airfare and hotels.
The gravity-fuelled Skyline Night Luge is a global thrill ride for all ages. The custom-built Luge carts put you in complete control as you take on over 1,600 meters of banked corners, tunnels, and dippers. Once is never enough. Go full throttle with Nevis Bungy; 134m bungy (the highest in New Zealand). It’s 8.5 seconds in a blitz of pure fear and adrenaline. Lake Hayes is a tranquil and beautiful lake just 15 minutes drive from downtown Queenstown. The lake attracts walkers, runners, and cyclists drawn to the area’s natural beauty. The reflective lake offers panoramic views of the surrounding mountains and invites you to take your camera out and snap away.
Queenstown offers a range of dining options, from gourmet restaurants to street food vendors, and has a lively nightlife scene with bars, clubs, and live music venues. Wine Tours: Tour the nearby vineyards and taste some of the region’s famous wines.
