Despite the mountainous landscape, the climate can be characterized as oceanic, with warm summers and temperatures that can reach up to 30°C/86°F, and cold winters with frequent snowfalls.
Extreme sport lovers can enjoy skydiving here in Queenstown. Jump with a parachute from a plane at 15000 ft/4572 m and make a free-fall at 200 kph/124.27 mph for 60 sec before the parachute opens.
