If you're flying into Queenstown be prepared for one of the most spectacular flights of your life! The Queenstown vibe is unlike any other. Surrounded by majestic mountains and on the shores of Lake Wakatipu it's the adventure capital. You can jump off things, dive into things, ski, bike and hike things. There's something for everyone here and it's a photographers dream location.
Piopiotahi / Milford Sound
If you've never been to Fiordland, prepare to be speechless with the sheer beauty of it. Carved by glaciers over 100,000 years it boasts incredible
mountains and vast valleys, the scale of which is almost beyond
comprehension. Where annual rainfall is measured in metres, rainforests hug mountains and flora and fauna are completely unique to the area.
Wanaka - home to the famous Wanaka Tree is one of the most picturesque towns in the South Island. It's a small township flanked by a magnificent lake and giant mountains. It's the gateway to Mt Aspiring National Park, a wilderness of Glaciers, Beech Forests and Alpine Lakes.
Lindis pass (elevation 971 metres) was one of the first ever tussock reserves in New Zealand.
The Ahuriri Valley is a picturesque landscape that passes the famous Clay Cliffs. It really comes into its own when the Lupines are flowering in Spring but is gorgeous all year round.
Twizel is the largest town in the Mackenzie and Lake Ruataniwha is the star of the show. Stunning at any time of year it really is something extra special in Autumn.
Aoraki / Mt Cook
Aoraki/Mt Cook is the highest mountain in New Zealand at 3724 metres but Mt Cook National Park has 19 peaks over 3000 metres in total.
Be prepared to see the incredible water colour of Lake Pukaki. The glacial feed to the lake gives it a stunning powder blue colour which is created by glacial flour, the extremely fine ground rock particles from the glaciers.
Tekapo is in the heart of McKenzie Country and home to the famous Church of the Good Shepherd but it is so much more than that!
Lake Wakatipu is the third largest lake in New Zealand and at 84 km long, it’s also the longest. It's name comes from Maori, Whakatipu wai-māori, which could mean “growing bay” or “bay of spirits”, depending on the translation of the historic Southern dialect.
