Out and about nearby

Azur Lodge boasts a spectacular setting in the tranquillity of Sunshine Bay on the shores of Lake Wakatipu. Here, 3.5 acres of native bush land have created a feeling of being alone with just the Southern Alps for company. Yet 5-minutes down the road lies central Queenstown, and all the touring infrastructure of this adventurous city. To make the most of the spectacular landscape that surrounds you, choose from a number of sightseeing excursions. For example, some may opt to take a helicopter to the world-famous Milford Sound. Land on a glacier, and revel in the inaccessibility of this majestic alpine environment. Elsewhere, board the vintage TSS Earnslaw for a special steamship cruise on the glassy waters of Lake Wakatipu, or swap your boat for a 4-wheel-drive adventure in search of the infamous Skipper's Canyon Road, a narrow cut in the middle of a sheer cliff face guaranteed to thrill daredevils. Other guests will enjoy a more active stay in the famously-adventurous Queenstown. A number of sporting options are on offer for guests looking to explore the landscape in a more intimate way. Choose from hiking, fishing, or horseback riding in guided locations. Golfers may opt for a round on one of New Zealand's finest courses, including Millbrook Resort, Queenstown Golf Club, Arrowtown Golf Course, Jacks Point Gold Course, or, most famously, The Hills, home of the NZ Open. In the winter months, swap golf clubs for skis as you explore the most popular ski fields on the South Island, Coronet Peak and The Remarkables. With so much to choose from, there is something for every energy level in this adventurous outpost of New Zealand. Couples may pamper themselves in the hot pools overlooking the Shotover River Canyon, whereas adrenaline seekers may opt for a spot of white water rafting, or jetboating on the river below. Queenstown really does have it all on offer.
