Queenstown — 3 nights

Shallow Bay

Sheltered in an inlet of Lake Wakatipu, the resort town of Queenstown enjoys a strong reputation for its adventuring and skiing opportunities.
Go for a jaunt from Queenstown to Te Anau to see Kepler Track about 2 hours away. There's lots more to do: have some family-friendly fun at Skyline Queenstown, tee off at Queenstown Golf Club, whizz through the canopy at some of the top local zipline courses and adventure parks, and admire the natural beauty at Queenstown Gardens.

To see where to stay, photos, and tourist information, read our Queenstown trip itinerary planner.

New Delhi, India to Queenstown is an approximately 23.5-hour flight. You'll lose 6.5 hours traveling from New Delhi to Queenstown due to the time zone difference. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 27th (Sun) early enough to fly to Auckland.

Land of the Long White Cloud
Far-flung New Zealand has become known for its astounding topography, singular biodiversity, varied climate, and for marrying native Maori and post-colonial European cultures on its two main islands and the multitude of smaller landmasses dotted around them. Free-spirited New Zealanders cultivate a love of sports, sustainability, and the outdoors. Far from other landmasses, the islands existed for millions of years before being inhabited by humans, so an abundance of species have come to thrive in the thick, wild rainforest, vast and rugged backland, and extensive surrounding marine areas. While much of New Zealand tourism centers around adventures through this spectacular scenery, take time to explore the nation's rich cultural heritage as well. The traditions and history of the Maoris, and the industry and internationalism of the descendents of the first European settlers endure in fascinating attractions, ranging from museums, to farms, to places of worship.
