Queenstown

Queenstown is home to many marvels including spectacular mountain ranges, racing rivers, hundreds of sheep farms, and Milford Sound, which Rudyard Kipling called "the eighth wonder of the world." This little town saw a gold rush in the 1860s and today is the mecca of tourism in New Zealand with gorgeous scenery, adventure, romantic and luxurious boutique hotels and lots of adventure.

The number one attraction in New Zealand is a visit to Milford Sound, the journey offers some of the most magnificent scenery and spectacular lookouts. Milford Sound houses one of the planet's most spectacular fjords. You'll take a launch through the fjord, cruising past sheer rock walls, lakes as smooth as glass, and roaring waterfalls cocooned by mist. At the end of the day, you can return to Queenstown by taking a spectacular scenic flight over the Southern Alps.
