Queenstown may be the most beautiful of all New Zealand’s cities. It offers everything you’d expect from an essential tourist destination, with shopping, fine dining and quirky city streets, but Queenstown also has a reputation for being the adventure capital of the world. Campervan hire in Queenstown via Camplify’s network of trusted owners offers the freedom to explore the picturesque natural landscape that lays just outside the city, and the flexibility to be as adventurous as you want to be.
After picking up your van in or around Queenstown, you’ll be hard pressed to decide where to go next. The Alps sprawl out to the north of Queenstown, the lake to the south, and a relatively short drive to the west is the stunning west coast, Milford Sound, and the famous glaciers – Fox and Franz Josef.
Queenstown sits on the banks of Lake Wakatipu. An Instagrammer’s dream, the Lake is a place for gorgeous sunsets and lazy afternoons aboard its resident vintage paddle streamer. The Remarkables Mountain Range frames the lake from the south-east and is famous not just for its beauty but its adrenaline-packed activities like bungee jumping and paragliding. Campgrounds around Queenstown and Lake Wakatipu are plentiful, and most are located within an easy drive of breathtakingly beautiful locations.
Queenstown also offers adventure activities like white water rafting, canyon swings, and river surfing, with an emphasis on fun and safety. For those in need of a milder adventure, the Queenstown Skyline Gondola offers a bird's eye view of Queenstown’s unique scenic location.
There is so much to explore around Queenstown. With lakes to see, mountains to climb and an unspoiled natural environment at its doorstep, Queenstown is the ideal place to pick up your RV and start your driving holiday adventure.
