Just one of the many photo ops throughout our scenic drive.


Canyoning in Wanaka is part hiking, part rapeling, part zip lining, part scrambling, part cliff diving and part sliding.  It’s very wet and can get cold, especially during the early part of the season when there is higher water flow.  We lucked out with great weather.

Take the Skyline gondola up for this spectacular view of Queenstown and don’t forget to do the luge.

luge-1It’s a lot more fun than it looks and trust me, you’ll want to do it more than once, especially since there are two tracks, an easier one and harder one. Yipeeeee…..


Another shot of Queenstown from above the luge tracks.


Glacial waters underfoot.  The aqua color of the streams and lakes created by glacial water melt are unlike anything anything I’ve ever seen.
