Queenstown – the home of the ultimate adventure bucket list.  With its towering mountains and lakeside location, Queenstown is an adventure hub, bursting with adrenaline and fun. With a smorgasbord of outdoor activities, it is a great place to start your Around the Mountains Cycle Trail adventure.

Queenstown sits on the shore of Lake Wakatipu among dramatic alpine ranges.  It’s rumoured that gold prospectors – captivated by the majestic beauty of the surrounding mountains and rivers – gave this now cosmopolitan town its name.
