Here’s where you go to get the best views of Queenstown

 Wanna see gorgeous views of Queenstown?

Well, you are in luck! Just hop on to a gondola and ride to the top of Bob’s Peak. The views from the top are absolutely stunning and if you find yourself glaring at the beautiful town, Lake Wakatipu and the surrounding mountains, well, you are not alone. It is definitely one of those views that will make you speechless!

If you are in a mood for a good hike, feel free to taking the hiking trail to the apex of Bob’s Peak. You see, I’m lazy and I love taking the gondola. I loved the idea of getting up to the summit in less than 7 minutes without any efforts whatsoever.


While you are up there, definitely try the Luge. This was my first time Lugeing and I must admit, I was a bit nervous. But it turned out to be so much fun. You wear your helmets, sit on the luge, select your track and off you go, controlling your speed along the way. There are several cameras along the track; be sure to say “Cheers” at the camera.

The first time around I did the slow track. But once I got the hang of it, I started zipping through the fast track. Absolute fun! I highly recommend!


All along the luge, you get to see the gorgeous views of Queenstown from up above. Can’t beat that!

There’s also a Stratosphere Restaurant at the summit of Bob’s Peak. Definitely nice to have a lovely dinner, while enjoying the gorgeous views. However, I noticed that a lot of tourists standing on the terrace were hiding the views from patrons inside the restaurants. So I didn’t see a point in dining there.
