If you’re planning a vacation from the USA to New Zealand, Queenstown is a great choice, especially if you love outdoor sports. Located in the South Island, Queenstown is New Zealand’s adventure capital, offering spectacular scenery and an abundance of adrenalin-fueled activities including bungee jumping, white-water rafting and jet boating. Queenstown has also become a top destination for winter sports, with a number of world-class ski areas and hosting the Winter Games NZ – a qualifier for ESPN Winter X Games.
New Zealand is situated in the Southern Hemisphere, so the seasons are opposite to those in the USA. Queenstown has an alpine climate, with winter occurring between June and August, and average daytime temperatures of 32 – 46 °F, often falling below freezing. Summer is from December to February, with typical temperatures of 68 – 86 °F and long days.
Airlines offering flights from the United States into Queenstown include Air New Zealand and Qantas, plus there are also daily connections from Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch. Queenstown Airport is located about 10 kilometers from the town center.
