Take a quick look at Nathan Kaso’s full list of videos and you’ll know he’s one talented guy, but this video just happened to be our absolute favourite. As he says, Queenstown is known as the adventure capital of New Zealand. Despite being such a small town, its location amongst the mountains in the South Island means there is nonstop fun for even the most adventure-shy visitor. Fancy a jet-boating excursion, or bungee jumping at heart-stopping heights? Yep. Queenstown is probably where you need to be. The surrounding scenery ain’t bad on the eyes either.
Kaso shot this Queenstown adventure guide over five summery days, at various vantage points around town. If you want to find your own epic views, he suggests the Skyline Gondola Lookout, Coronet Peak, The Remarkables Road, Crown Range Road, and Arthurs Point. You have options to choose from.
New Zealand is a bucket list destination for so many people, but oftentimes Queenstown gets overlooked. If lunging off a terrifying platform during a bungee jump isn’t your thing, try something else. If you still wanna be adventurous, a Queenstown cycling tour is an option. If you’d rather be on the water, have a guide take you out kayaking.
BUT if you want some down time in Queenstown, there are plenty of options there as well. Take a relaxed island tour around the South Island, and soak up the views without having to, you know, actually exert yourself. Hey, you’re on vacation. We don’t judge.
