First impressions count
Land in Queenstown, collect your luggage and jump straight onto a helicopter. There is no better way to get your bearings than seeing Queenstown from the top of a mountain with the snow at your feet and a glass of champagne in your hand.
Explore the area by land
Take a tour offering gold panning, a taste of NZ's pioneer gold mining history, 4WD river crossings, and a great overview of the diverse scenery of the Queenstown/Arrowtown area. From towns, to rolling farmland, rugged canyons, spectacular mountain scenery, and famous scenes from The Lord of the Rings. You will also venture into Skippers Canyon which was hacked by hand into the sheer cliff sides of the Shotover River valley.
Relaxation and Retail Therapy
