Queenstown is considered by many sportsmen as the capital of extreme sports and adventure activities. It is situated in Otago region, in the South Island, New Zealand.
The town is surrounded by Lake Wakatipu and the awe-inspiring Southern Alps, with spectacular mountains such as the Remarkables, Cecil Peak and Ben Lomond. Queenstown and the surrounding area was the setting for the legendary films Lord of the Rings and X-Men Origins. Despite the mountainous landscape, the climate is considered to be oceanic, with warm summers and temperatures that can reach up to 30°C/86°F, and cold winters with frequent snowfalls.
Quad Biking lovers should visit Cardrona Adventure Park, situated opposite to Cardrona Ski Resort (58 km/36 mi from Queenstown; 34 km/21 mi from Wanaka). The Park offers a great variety of quad biking adventures addressed to riders of all levels.
Feel great amounts of adrenaline pumping inside your body while driving on demanding terrain (mud, snow, river, hills) or choose a more scenic and relaxing ride. 50cc, 80cc and 90cc quad bikes also available for kids. Tip: Don’t forget to try a monster truck ride (the only place in the world offering trucks for public ride).
