Queenstown, the Southern Lakes and Fiordland

The roof of New Zealand is the area around the southern lakes with its charming domestic centres, Wanaka and Queenstown.

Both are directly on the lake and surrounded by the main winter ski areas of New Zealand. In this area you get beautiful views around each corner and it is one of the world most popular spots to enjoy adrenaline activities.

Queenstown is known as the adrenaline capital of the world: Earth, water or air, there is something to test and thrill everyone. Quieter, but equally beautiful, the pretty lakeside resort Te Anau is the gateway to the serene landscapes of the Fiordland National Park.

Renowned for such natural wonders as the Milford- and the Doubtful sounds, it is the biggest National Park in New Zealand and a World Heritage Area.

Don’t miss:

Fiordland National Park - World Heritage Area

There are so many different possibilities to visit the natural highlights like the Doubtful or Milford Sound: by bus, by airplane, by helicopter, by bike, by kayak, by ship, or even by foot….

So please, make sure you have been there before leaving the south-western tip of New Zealand.

Arrowtown – a walk back in time

Established in 1862, Arrowtown is set by the Arrow River, 30 minutes drive from Queenstown. Being recognised as one of the richest sources of alluvial gold in the world, William Fox, a sailor, was the first to claim the discovery of gold in the icy cold Arrow River.

Because of this, the town was originally called Fox's Rushes. Today Arrowtown is probably the most well-preserved gold mining town in Otago.

Its buildings are protected and many have been lovingly restored so that you feel as if you have walked back in time.

Wanaka - Queenstown's little sister

The small and quiet sister of crazy Queenstown.
Lake Wanaka lies at the heart of the Southern Lakes, New Zealand's alpine wonderland.

Through all seasons Lake Wanaka beats to its own rhythm. Take time to explore this exquisite piece of real New Zealand and revitalise your spirit. When you are finished absorbing the romantic ambience, the town has heaps of activities to do for you.

From golfing to skydiving, everything is possible!
