Enjoy 3 nights accommodation from $679 and TSS Earnslaw- a 50.84 metre coal-fired vintage steamship originally built in 1912.
Following the 40 minute outward voyage from Queenstown across Lake Wakatipu, disembark at Walter Peak High Country Farm for a BBQ lunch. The BBQ is cooked on the terrace in front of the Colonel's Homestead overlooking Lake Wakatipu and is then served on the terrace or inside the Homestead. Before or after the BBQ, you can wander amongst the farm animals (sheep, red deer, alpacas, Scottish Highland cattle) and join in the farmyard walking tour, which includes dog handling and sheep shearing demonstrations. Afterwards, re-board the TSS Earnslaw for a return cruise to Queenstown. KJet- Firstly, your twin engine Jet boat roars across crystal clear Lake Wakatipu at breath-taking speed, surrounded by majestic mountains and mesmerising scenery. Then you zoom under the Kawarau Dam onto the deep green waters of The Kawarau River, complete with lots of 360 spins. Next the adventure heightens as your driver navigates the fast moving currents of the narrow braided Shotover River, racing up the shallow channels at speeds of up to 95KPH in water that's less than 10cm deep in places.
About the hotel: On the shores of Lake Wakatipu, showcasing panoramic views over a world-famous landscape. This is an exhilarating setting just 15 minutes from town with a complimentary shuttle available. Spacious, air-conditioned guestrooms with contemporary alpine design.
