Maybe you would like to indulge with a restful cruise on tranquil waters of Queenstown's Lake Wakatipu or an invigorating dip in a private onsen hot pool, while being mesmerized by the stunning mountain views. Perhaps you would prefer to spoil yourself in style, with an evening cruise on the TSS Earnslaw across the lake – heading towards Walter Peak – and a delectable buffet dinner at the Colonel's Homestead. There is also night time bungy jumping for the fearless, a luxurious overnight catamaran trip on Doubtful Sound, kayaking from Glenorchy’s shores, gondola rides to the Skyline restaurant and bar and an overnight cruise of Milford Sound. Or if you are looking for something a little different and a way to get to know some fellow travellers, then check out the Twilight wine and craft beer tour with Altitude Tours. With this much to do during the twilight hours, you’ll be wondering whether a nocturnal lifestyle might be a better choice!
