4 Day The Best of Queenstown

4 Day The Best of Queenstown

Relax in the comfort of your boutique hotel, take a wilderness cruise on Doubtful Sound and travel the Dart River by jetboat.

The alpine resort of Queenstown is exciting, sophisticated and fantastically scenic. Perhaps the most famous of all South Island cities, Queenstown’s pulse thumps to the beat of action, adrenaline and visual wonder.

On boarding a luxury glass-roofed coach in Queenstown, travel along the shores of Lake Wakatipu and through the rolling countryside to Manapouri. Then cruise across the crystal waters of Lake Manapouri to West Arm before boarding a coach and crossing the alpine route of Wilmot Pass through some of Fiordland and Doubtful Sound’s most dense rainforest.

On reaching Deep Cove, board a modern catamaran vessel, the Patea Explorer for a three hour cruise exploring the waterways of this serene and isolated fiord. There is plenty of time available to explore points of interest and view the spectacular alpine scenery including waterfalls, rainforest and mountains all the way out to the Tasman Sea. It is home to bottlenose dolphins and fur seals and when in season, the rare Fiordland crested penguin.

An on board nature guide with specialist knowledge of the region’s history, flora and fauna provides detailed interpretation in English with a roving microphone. On the return cruise, the vessel’s engines are turned off and visitors are treated to the ‘sound of silence’.

Most visits to Queenstown will involve some form of outdoor adventure, as well as simply relaxing and taking in the scenery from one of the many cafés. The ‘Wilderness Safari’ is a diverse adventure exploring spectacular ‘World Heritage’ wilderness. Journey from Queenstown along one of the world’s most scenic drives to Glenorchy at the head of Lake Wakatipu. Enjoy the area’s longest wilderness jet boat journey, complete with thrilling jet spins, informative guided ancient forest walk and back-country 4WD bus tour.

You will find yourself urrounded by awe-inspiring peaks and mysterious hidden valleys shrouded in native Beech forest. Walk amongst the ancient beech forest, unchanged for 80 million years. Your specialist guides will bring to life the variety of landscapes, vegetation and wildlife within this unique area, as well the captivating stories of the original Maori and early pioneers.
