Queenstown's Lake Wakatipu is bordered by snow-capped mountains, native forest and picturesque bays - perfect to enjoy by boat cruise.
Journey to the best viewpoints on Lake Wakatipu to see The Remarkables mountain range; some boat cruises stop for a swim and a picnic when weather permits. For a true Queenstown experience book an evening cruise on the TSS Earnslaw - a comfortably-appointed vintage steamship that will whisk you to Walter Peak for dinner at the Colonel's Homestead. Experiencing Queenstown and Lake Wakatipu from the water on a boat cruise is a quintessential New Zealand experience.
Queenstown is also 3.5 hours by road from the boat cruises of Milford Sound. Known for its spectacular fiords, waterfalls and wildlife encounters; getting out on the water in Milford Sound is a real must-do if you're nearby. You can experience a boat cruise in Milford Sound on a round-trip coach tour from Queenstown - however, it does make for a long day, and overnighting in Te Anau might make this a more enjoyable journey.
