Scenic Queenstown

Queenstown, New Zealand, sits on the shores of the South Island’s Lake Wakatipu, set against the dramatic Southern Alps. Renowned for adventure sports, it’s also a base for exploring the region’s vineyards and historic mining towns. There’s bungee jumping off Kawarau Gorge Suspension Bridge and jet-boating on the Shotover and Dart rivers. In winter, there’s skiing on the slopes of The Remarkables and Coronet Peak.

Queenstown is surrounded by mountain ranges and is famous for its pristine beauty.

The weather in Queenstown during the race time of November is around 16 degrees. The nights also get quite cool, so we advise our tour members to take warm clothing.
