A gentler way to scale Central Otago heights is with a ride on the Skyline Gondola, which takes you 450 metres above Queenstown to Bob’s Peak for uninterrupted views of the Wakatipu Basin. Once you get there, give the Skyline Luge, a family favourite, a go. Take a seat in a cart and ride down purpose-built tracks complete with twists and turns for a gravity-fuelled adventure. The Skyline also offers access to some of the region’s most scenic walking routes in Ben Lomond Reserve and to mountain-biking trails in the Queenstown Bike Park. Once you’ve had your fill of adventure, head to Stratosfare Restaurant & Bar to refuel. The views from the hilltop building are great all day but get here in time for sunset for the best show in town.
