NZ Tour: Queenstown

Queenstown seen from the hills. Behind the town The Remarkables.

Those darling seagulls.

Trees were huge.

This may be the southernmost LV store in the world?

Our long drive across NZ was finally over and we arrived to Queenstown, where we spent 3 nights. We had booked a luxury condo at Alta Apartments. Our apartment had 3 spacious bedrooms and a huge living room with integrated kitchen. The apartment had a magnificent view towards Lake Wakatipu and The Remarkables.

It was nice to have couple of days just to walk around without hurry to go to the next place. And we walked indeed. The last day of 2009 we climbed to Ben Lomond, which was partially snow topped and is 1748m high. The views along the route and from the summit were breathtaking. See below.

After Queenstown we flew back to Auckland and spent a day there before heading home.
