If you would prefer to get excited rather than relax, this is the holiday for you! In the Winter, it’s full of people skiing, and in the Summer you can white water raft down beautiful rivers and enjoy picnics next to rushing waters... and if you get bored of playing in the river, Queenstown is New Zealand’s jetboat and bungie jumping capital, so there’s plenty of activities to keep your blood pumping.
