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 apartment at Garden Court Suites and Apartments. The rest of the day is yours to harness – what will you do first?
Enjoy the ultimate family day out. No visit to Queenstown is complete without enjoying the adrenaline rush of the iconic, world famous Shotover Jet Boat. The whole family will enjoy the thrills of skimming past rocky outcrops at close range as you twist and turn through the narrow canyons of the Shotover Gorge at breathtaking speed. Your state of the art ‘Big Red’ Jet Boat travels at up to 85kph over crystal clear water as shallow as 10cm deep. And make sure you’re holding on tight when your driver makes the signal that you are about to experience the thrills of their trademark 360° spins!
Sit back, relax, take in the breathtaking views over Queenstown and Lake Wakatipu on your gondola ride to the top of Bob’s Peak. The Skyline Luge is a thrilling ride for all ages. You’ll have full control over the speed and direction of your purpose-built luge cart as you zoom down the luge before catching the chairlift back to the start zone to do it all over again! The scenic track is the more leisurely, with a gentle gradient, easy bends, tunnels and dips whilst the advanced track is a steeper and more adventurous ride. At the Skyline Restaurant, enjoy a sumptuous lunch while taking in the stunning views over the lake and mountains.
After lunch, it’s time to experience the Ziptrek Moa 4-line Flying Fox adventure. Enjoy a unique, entertaining and thrilling eco-adventure experience with Ziptrek Ecotours. Located atop Skyline Gondola Hill, the Moa Zipline (flying fox) tour is a great new family adventure for ‘zippers’ of all ages. You’ll glide through the treetops on a series of 4 flying foxes whilst enjoying an interpretive tour delivered by experienced guides as you zip from tree to tree.
Enjoy a free day to sightsee and explore at your leisure. It’s time to make memories in Queenstown. Pick and choose from a long list of adventures – from thrilling funyak tours along the Dart River and horse-riding in Glenorchy, to panning for gold in Arrowtown or taking a tour of Lake Wakatipu via the TSS Earnslaw, there is certainly something for every speed.
Or a scenic walk may do the trick, exploring the diverse range of stunning trails the region delivers in troves.
Enjoy the fun and thrills of the Dart River Funyak Safari. Your adventure begins with a jet boat ride on the crystal clear, glacial fed waters of the Dart River as you journey into the enchanted wilderness of the Mt Aspiring National Park, a World Heritage listed area.
Then it’s into your unique Funyak (inflatable canoe) for the fun downstream journey. Your specialist guide will point out sights and share stories of this awe-inspiring area as you explore the shimmering channels of the Dart River as well as hidden side streams, rock pools and dramatic chasms.
You’ll stop along the way and enjoy a delicious wilderness buffet lunch amidst spectacular surrounds before continuing downstream to ‘Paradise’. Return to Queenstown via a back-country route through the spectacular locations and scenery that formed some of the epic backdrops for the hit-movie, ‘The Lord of the Rings’.
Free time for some last minute sightseeing before making your way to Queenstown airport to depart for your next destination.
