Queenstown – where anything is possible

heliworksqtwn It’s the soul touching, ‘anything is possible’ atmosphere in a region of unrivalled scenic diversity that gives Queenstown its edge. Add to this the endless action-packed itineraries, untold leisure and pampering options, and some of the world’s best wine and food and you couldn’t find a more inspiring resort town.

First timers are continually awed by Queenstown and bemused visitors find themselves wondering how they can feel challenged and relaxed all at the same time.

 

 

Tucked into a picturesque bay on the calming shores of Lake Wakatipu and surrounded by jagged peaks, the magical feel of the town hits before you even touch down. The breathtaking aerial view of the region’s arresting mountains evokes a strong desire to get out there and replace daily stresses with exhilaration.

theledgeqtwnThe concentration of adrenalin sport pioneers in Queenstown is uncanny and the passion rubs off on many visitors who leave having achieved something they said they could never do. Personal discovery lies in the strangest of places and Queenstown offers endless options: bungy jumping, canyon swinging, white-water rafting, tandem hangliding, parapenting, jet boating, heli-skiing or skydiving.

 

 

 

Queenstown has its own unique brand of relaxation too. Hidden away in every possible corner are intimate bars, cafés and restaurants offering a sophisticated urban feel while exclusive spas in wonderful surroundings offer luxurious pampering treatments. Rivers fuelled by mighty glaciers are great places to rest the mind while catching a fish or two, and ancient Beech forests and superbly tended mountain tracks put work issues far from the mind as nature pushes life back into perspective.
