“Seriously... this is a MUST do while in Queenstown. Nothing beats being immersed in your own private hot tub, overlooking the Shotover River, or if you make a night booking, then gazing up to the stars. I highly recommend this special treat!”

“Hike up to the top of Ben Lomond for spectacular views of Queenstown, Lake Wakatipu and the Southern Alps. You can either start from the bottom at the base of the Gondola, or take the Gondola up to save you ca. 1 hour each way (but it costs you $40 pp return). Total from bottom: 6-8 hours Total from top of Gondola: 4-6 hours”
