4. Climb Queenstown Hill for sunrise or sunset
If you love the idea of enjoying epic views, but aren’t feeling up for the long hike to the summit of Ben Lomond, check out Queenstown Hill at sunrise or sunset. With views over Queenstown, Lake Wakatipu and the Remarkables, the vistas from Queenstown Hill are good at any time of day, but are even more magical in the golden hours.
5. Take an overnight cruise on the Doubtful Sound
Sometimes called the 'Sound of Silence' Doubtful Sound is the deepest (421 metres) and second longest (40 kilometres) of the South Island's fiords. The fiord is rich in flora and fauna. New Zealand Fur Seals and Fiordland Crested Penguins can be seen on many of the small islets at the entrance of the fiord. Discover the unspoilt and remote wilderness of this amazing place during a unique overnight cruise.
