Make Sure Queenstowns Is Part Of Your New Zealand Tour

Jun 1, 2008
The most enviable and distinctive sights to new visitors of Queenstown is the Skyline complex which is high above the city. Make sure you take time on your New Zealand tour for the breathtaking 220 degree panoramic views that include Lake Wakatipu, Coronet Peak, The Remarkables mountain range and more. For adventure seekers, you can slip downhill in the winding Skyline Luge. Also, take advantage of AJ Hacketts Bungy or even explore a tandem parapente flight. For less adventurous folks, many walking paths can be accessed from the Skyline and range from 30 minute to full day hikes.

If you want to take in spectacular views of Aucklands Waitemata Harbour, all you have to do is sit back and relax and take a sailing and dining cruise. Let the professionals handle your yacht and trim the sales while you enjoy the freshest and most appetizing New Zealand cuisine as well as listen to informative commentary on the sights of Auckland city and the Harbour Bridge. Most tours also include an entry to the New Zealand National Maritime Museum. For those taking a day cruise, you can sail to Rangitoto and Motutapu Island as well as anchor down on the western tip of Waiheke Island for lunch, a walk on shore and even take a swim by the beach.

Global Warming or not, you can take part in a historic guided tour onto the world famous Fox Glacier. Many hiking tours offer a range of walks for all fitness levels. Situated on the west coast of South Island and only 12 miles south of Franz Josef, Fox is New Zealands largest guided glacier tour. While there, you can walk the stunning glacier which is the main feature of Westland National Park and considered a World Heritage area. This edutainment portion of your trip may just be the most fun you have had learning ever.

Other Antarctic attractions include the International Antarctic Center which is located next to the Christchurch International Airport. This fun and exciting environment simulates real Antarctic conditions with a Touch Screen tour equipped with Arctic wind chill. You can slide down a snow slope, or take the Antarctic Hagglund Ride. The International Antarctic Center, a 2 time winner of Best Attraction by the NZ Tourism awards also serves up delicious cuisine in the Cafe and has spacious meeting rooms for themed events.

Do not forget the Willobank Wildlife Reserve where they actually recommend that you feed the animals! Also, with the Wildlife by Night and Kiwi House events, you can observe the kiwi and other rare animal life in their natural environment. An award winning restaurant awaits the hungry with scrumptious New Zealand cuisine where you can also take your tour under the stars.
