Day by Day Tour Itinerary
Kia Ora. Welcome to Queenstown – a walking, bungee and hiking paradise. After making your way through the terminal, through customs and baggage collection, make your way to your family-friendly, self-catering accommodation located just a five minute walk from the centre of town.
One of the first sights to captivate visitors to Queenstown is the distinctive outline of the Skyline building high above town. This morning you will take in the sights of Queenstown on the Skyline Gondola and luge.
Located an easy five minute walk from central Queenstown, Skyline Queenstown offers awe-inspiring views of the region and an abundance of entertainment and adventure for the whole family. Take the gondola to the top of Bob’s Peak. Hurtle down the winding downhill Skyline Luge – it’s the fastest fun on wheels! There’s casual dining available during the day in the Skyline Cafe so you can refuel after all the excitement.
In the afternoon it’s all aboard the TSS Earnslaw for a cruise on Lake Wakatipu. Watch the stokers fuelling the fireboxes and hear the sound of the steam engines working as the TSS Earnslaw takes you on a nostalgic cruise of beautiful Lake Wakatipu.
Every cruise allows you plenty of time to explore the TSS Earnslaw’s decks and bridge, view the engine room and historic displays in the Fo’c’sle Gallery and join a sing-along with the ship’s pianist.
Today you will explore Queenstown’s surrounding area and visit Arrowtown.
A site swarmed firstly by European gold prospectors in the 1860’s, then by 5,000 Chinese who were invited to try their luck among the leftovers! You’ll walk among the tiny restored cottages of their settlement and wander down the main street of this exquisite little town with its charming historic buildings that will make you feel like you walked onto a movie set.
Free time in Arrowtown to shop, sample cuisine and explore.
Sadly, your holiday has finished. Today you will make your way to the airport and connect with your onward flight.

FAQ - Frequently Asked Questions
You won’t pay more by booking your short break holiday with Relaxing Journeys. We have access to discounted industry rates and special deals, only available to those in the travel trade. So the amount we make on each short break, is the difference between these rates and retail rates that you would pay if you booked it all yourself. Of course, you also get peace of mind that all is organised professionally and you get our fantastic service thrown in! There will be occasions where a property may release a ‘walk in’ deal that may better our quote, however our prices are the best available at the time of booking.
Your dedicated tour consultant will email you through a quote. If it looks good, then full payment is required to confirm the booking (within 45 days) or a deposit of $100 per person is required outside this period. This must be paid by credit card (Visa or Mastercard only). We do not charge credit card fees on our short break packages. If the properties listed in the holiday package are unavailable at this time, we will provide you with alternatives until you are happy.
We welcome bookings from anywhere in the world. You can see how much each package is using our currency converter on this page. Only the New Zealand Dollar (NZ$) prices on this site are accurate. Prices in other currencies have been converted for your convenience, and are there to help you to compare to your own currency. All of our New Zealand tours are charged in New Zealand Dollars. Your credit card company will convert the amount paid from your currency into NZD automatically for you.
Some short break packages do not include (or may not require) a hire car, or internal flights. Relaxing Journeys can organise these extras for you and include them in your quote if you wish – or you can just book the short break ‘as is’, and organise everything else yourself. These extras can be requested after choosing your date and clicking ‘Confirm Availability’ on the right of this page.
The cost of getting to & from the airport to your accommodation is generally not included, although on some occasions it is, in which case we have specifcally mentioned it in the itinerary. There are always plenty of taxis or shuttles waiting at the airport. You also have the option in most cases to catch a bus into the city centres.
Once your deposit has been paid and you have received your deposit confirmation, we will organise your short break and when completed (normally within 48 hours) we will email you confirmation. When you pay your balance (45 days before the start date) we will email you a ‘Short Break Voucher’ shortly after along with your arrival information and everything else you need. Print this off and take it with you to NZ.
Your deposit is non-refundable. Relaxing Journeys would have already booked and confirmed all the components of your holiday and we will have to cancel everything and adhere to each suppliers cancellation policy. Should it become necessary for you to cancel your reservation 45 days or more prior to departure date, your deposit only shall be forfeited.
