Though Queenstown is known as the adventure capital of New Zealand and plays host to a number of large adrenaline filled activities, it has an abundance of slower paced and decadent alternatives for those who seek relaxation over adventure. Here are three of our picks.

Onsen Hot Pools – These Japanese style hot pools are the perfect place to relax and unwind during the winter. Experience the beauty of the region while soaking in your private hot pool. The walls are removable allowing you to completely immerse yourself in nature.

Vineyards – Queenstown is world renowned for is vast number of wineries in particular the Central Otago Pinot Noirs of the region. Make your way around the many vineyards by bike or take a wine tour stopping at various cellar doors. A notable mention is Amisfield Winery; spend the afternoon here sampling the chef’s choice with friends.

Day Spa – Millbrook resort offers an award winning day spa in a luxurious and peaceful setting. Cutting edge treatments combine with impeccable service, spend the whole day pampering yourself, or simply book a one off appointment for a quick fix. Offering complimentary shuttle services from Queenstown, no visit down south is complete without visiting Millbrook.
