Queenstown for backpackers
Queenstown is a popular destination for avid skiers and snowboarders, offering snow fields across places such as Coronet Peak and the impressive ski area of the Remarkables mountain range. Queenstown’s surrounding countryside has been featured in several Hollywood films, most famously portrayed as Middle Earth in the Lord of the Rings trilogy.
During the summer months, Queenstown is paradise for the adrenalin-seeker. Bungee jumping, white water rafting, skydiving and jet boating are all popular activities readily accessible, while milder pursuits like eco-tours, wine-tasting, and hiking available for those seeking a slower pace.
