On New Zealland tours Queenstown is one of New Zealand’s top travel destinations that attracts thousands of visitors which is not surprising as it is not only a very pretty lakeside town but also the gateway to some of the country's best natural scenery on a New Zeland vacation.

The city is small yet energetic and sits right next to the crystal clear Lake Wakatipu with an amazing backdrop of mountain ranges, one of which is the Remarkables. It is also a centre for adventure pursuits. Visitors, on a New Zealand vacation,  can experience a diverse range of activities including opportunities to bungee jump, sky dive, jet boat, plus go horse back riding and river rafting all within the nearby magnificent landscapes.

The old but venerable ship, the TSS Earnslaw will take you on a short cruise on the lake to get a good perspective of the beauty that surrounds Queenstown.

From here, it is very easy to take a day trip to the world heritage site on Queenstown tours to the Fjordland National Park and travel to Milford Sound to view New Zealand’s natural wonder of sheer cliffs rising right out of the fjord among lush rainforests and cascading waterfalls.

Other things to do on New Zealand tours are to go on a 4WD adventure and explore some of the locations used for the scenes in Lord of the Rings in the rural village of Glenorchy and also to see snow capped mountains, unspoiled lakes and rivers or take a scenic flight into the unexplored wilderness.
