Queenstown in the Otago Region is one of the most picturesque settings in the South Island. The Remarkables Mountains are well named as the backdrop for Lake Wakatipu. Tāhuna (Māori name) is an ideal destination for the active tourist. In winter, skiing is the main attraction. In summer, the choices include fishing, bungee jumping, boating, biking, hiking (called tramping) and camping. The most adventurous souls fly high and free on a paraglider.
