Queenstown Vacations: Adventure & Nature
Framed by the Remarkables range and nestled beside Lake Wakatipu, Queenstown’s spirit is defined by the wild spaces that surround it. There’s bungee jumping, skydiving, hang gliding, paragliding, and zip lining. Ski Coronet Peak or the Remarkables. Slow down the pace at the Onsen Hot Pools. Hike Bob’s Peak, or take Skyline Queenstown to the summit for breathtaking views. Whether you’re looking to get the adrenaline pumping or want some restorative time surrounded by natural beauty, your Liberty Travel vacation consultant can craft you a Queenstown vacation package that’s just your pace.
