Adventure in Queenstown

Queenstown has been shaped by many different cultures and lifestyles from its earliest days—but it’s adventure that has the most lasting mark on those who visit or choose to live here. Queenstown is the adventure capital of the world!

Home to the latest and greatest adventures, there are Queenstown adrenaline activities for every thrill-seeker, from iconic Queenstown bungy jumping to whitewater rafting, river surfing, canyon swinging and thrills on a jet boat.

From indoor thrills and spills to adventures high above the clouds, in the water or on the land, there are so many innovative ways to explore Queenstown and it surrounds it might be hard to choose how to go about it.

Find weird and wacky trips to satisfy your curiosity, speeding beneath the lake’s surface in a shark-like submersible, or why not add a chair or hang upside down on your swing trip?

There are also companies in Queenstown that specialise in creating adventure combos, or you can enquire with your preferred adventure activity provider to see what combos they offer.
