The view from window seat in South Island flight is awesome. Its like a free glacier air tour :P . We reached hotel and just roamed around but in evening weather got too cold. We visited the lake and Queenstown botanical garden.
Our last destination - Queenstown was like the dessert in a four course meal (the best part). Our Airbnb home at Queenstown was a wooden cabin amidst the mountains. For people who want to skip adventure, Queenstown was about beautiful lakes, amazing fiords, picturesque landscape. Getting clicked at any of the pit stops was like being part of those calendar photos that I was always in awe of.What we did in Queenstown?- Explored the beautiful lakes in Queenstown- Visited the Milford Sound- Went on a day tour to Lake Wanaka
In the city full of adventures, we thought of trying out any activity which has a little adventure in it but limitless fun. LUGE RIDE was the perfect pick then. We thought of not missing out on this one. Our trip to Queenstown would not have been complete without taking a ride on a Gondola (also called a cable car) and trying out a Luge ride. It gave the panoramic and spectacular views of this beautiful city while going up and from the top.
