5 nights/6 days at $1050 per person shared room only. Join us in Queenstown, New Zealand for the ultimate adventure trip. This truly is the dream trip of a lifetime. Our first tour will be the twin challenge which features white water rafting down the shotover river. After we conquer the river we will go jet boating down the cannon http://www.queenstownrafting.co.nz/half-day/combos/twin-challenge/ Our second tour will take us to the Milford Sound aboard the BBQ Bus. Milford Sound New Zealand is arguably the most scenic destination in New Zealand. Milford Sound is located at the northern most end of the 3 million acre Fiordland National Park, this also forms part of a large UNESCO world heritage area known as ‘Te Wahipounamu’ (place of Greenstone). Milford Sound bounded by steep cliffs and dense alpine rain forest continues to captivate even the most seasoned of travellers. Rising 1,692 vertical metres from Milford Sound is its most famous land mark, ‘Mitre Peak’ one of the highest mountain peaks in the world to rise directly from the sea. After a cruise around the sound we will enjoy a kiwi style' barbeque lunch which includes New Zealand lamb shish kebabs, our famous mango curry marinated chicken shish kebabs, and tasty sausages. (vegetarian option's available) We will also enjoy a visit to the fabulous Gibbston Valley Winery for a bike and wine/cheese tasting tour. Our hotel is minutes away from the nightlife and action of central Queenstown. This is an active trip for fun minded people. If you enjoy laughing, dancing, exploring, and adventure, then this trip is for you. Bring a friend or a family, but make sure they are fun.
