If you’re planning a visit to Queenstown this winter and your time is limited, we’ve got the perfect itinerary for you.
Start your day early and get your coffee to go for first tracks at Coronet Peak. The mountain is only 25 minutes from the centre of Queenstown and first tracks gets you on the slopes at 8am for fresh corduroy before the crowds arrive at 9am.

After a few hours of skiing head back to town for lunch and your next adventure, an hour of power on a KJet Jet boat. Take in the views on the Kawarau River then get ready for some excitement as your driver navigates the shallow braids of the Shotover River with plenty of 360 spins thrown in for good measure.

Discover hidden views on Spirit of Queenstown Scenic Cruise
After an adrenalin fuelled jet boat ride it’s time to sit back, relax and enjoy the spectacular scenery on Queenstown’s longest lake cruise. You’ll discover Lake Wakatipu’s hidden gems, Bob’s Cove and Mt Nicholas High Country Farm, and unmissable views towards Glenorchy and the Southern Alps.

Finish the day with great wine and food
After your cruise stop in at Little Blackwood where you can enjoy the sun setting over Queenstown with a glass of local pinot noir in hand. Finish the day with some epic food at Madam Woo; we highly recommend one of their signature hawker rolls to get you started.
After dinner you could check out one of the many Queenstown bars or head home for an early night; after all this is Queenstown and you’ll have another action packed day ahead of you tomorrow!
