Day 2 - Shotover Jet, Gondola & Luge
An iconic day starting with an extreme experience when you jump into a Shotover Jet Boat which has you missing rock walls by centimetres while travelling at around 80 km/h through dramatic and narrow canyons! Back in Queenstown marvel at the stunning views as you ride the Skyline Queenstown Gondola - the steepest cable car lift in the Southern Hemisphere. The Gondola carries you 450 metres above Queenstown and Lake Wakatipu with breath taking views over Queenstown. Your guide will take you higher to the Ben Lomand Peak on a short hike, to get even more intense 360 views. Then jump on your specialised Luge cart, select your track and zoom down the Luge tracks with 800 metres of fun, fast-paced freedom.

Day 3 - Milford Sound
Up early for one of the classic day trips in New Zealand - a cruise at Milford Sound. This cruise is breathtaking and will be one of your highlights of New Zealand. This flooded glacial valley is a photographer’s paradise. Luxuriant rain forest clings to sheer rock walls that are awash with waterfalls. Mitre Peak is a majestic presence dominating the skyline. Seal spotting in the crystal clear waters is a great buzz. Time allowing, your guide will introduce you to the 1.5-hour Key Summit walk. Be amazed by tiny Alpine Tarns (Crystal Clear Mini Lakes), experience NZs’ alpine environment, and take in amazing views.
Included: 1 x dorm accommodation, breakfast, Milford Sound Cruise, Key Summit Walk
Day 4 - Fun & Sun
Today is the perfect blend of being active, connecting with nature, finding your zen and plain old adrenalin fuelled excitement. Queenstown is famous for its adrenalin sports – now it’s your turn. You'll immerse yourself in the mountain scenery while you experience the physical and emotional challenges of rock climbing. Abseiling is the art of descending from the top (of something) to the bottom. Sometimes you walk down a wall, sometimes you are swinging free in the air, sometimes you're dropping deep into a hole. This is a recipe for absolute thrills and fun, and you’re in control! Complete the day with a glass of champagne on Coronet Peak before your final night out.
Included: 1 x dorm accommodation, breakfast, 1/2 day Rock Climbing & Abseiling, cliff jump, social night out
Day 5 - Check Out & Chillax
This action-packed Queenstown adventure comes to end. Depending on your flight and your motivation you may decide to chill by the lake or ramp it up again with a skydive or even a bungy jump! All these can be organised with our local guide including extra nights accommodation if you wish to extend your stay.
