You’ve probably spent considerable time planning your Queenstown wedding day, but what will you and your guests get up to for the rest of your time in Queenstown?
One of the best things about a destination wedding in Queenstown is that you and your friends and whānau are all off work at the same time and in the same place, so why not make the most of that time and book some awesome Queenstown group activities together?
Here are some options for you and your crew to enjoy some extra quality time together in Queenstown:
For the Adrenaline Junkies:
If you’re looking for a thrill then Queenstown has definitely got you covered!
From bungee jumping and sky diving to whitewater rafting and jet boats there are plenty of adrenaline-filled Queenstown activities for you and your wedding guests.
Just don’t forget your souvenir photos to prove you did it!
For the Cruisers:
How about a Queenstown boat cruise on Lake Wakatipu?
With this Queenstown activity you can climb aboard, sit back with a wine or a coffee, and enjoy the lake and mountain views from a whole new vantage point.
You might even discover new and exclusive lakeside locations to explore!
For the Sharpshooters:
If you’re looking for a Queenstown group activity that’s lots of fun but a little bit different, then how about some target practice?
With options such as archery, laser clay shooting and knife throwing, you’ll have a blast with a bit of healthy competition amongst your Queenstown wedding guests.
For the Wine Enthusiasts:
Discover unique, award-winning and delicious wines on a scenic Queenstown wine tour.
The beautiful wine-growing area of Gibbston Valley, also known as the Valley of Vines, is only a short drive from Queenstown and home to multiple cellar doors offering opportunities for you to try before you buy!
Pro tip: Book a tour so that you don’t have to worry about driving and ask your local tour guide about their favourite vineyards.
For the Luxury Lovers:
Many Queenstown activity providers offer private tours, bespoke packages, and personalised services to meet your every need.
You can customise your combination of Queenstown activities and arrive at each one in style, even via helicopter!
For a Rainy Day:
If you run into some bad weather during your Queenstown wedding holiday then worry not, there are some great Queenstown rainy day activities.
You could get your thrills with a 3D motion theatre experience or paint-less paintball, relax and unwind at a luxury spa, or settle into a cosy corner of the bar and grab a board game.
For the Hikers & Bikers:
Queenstown is surrounded by hiking and biking trails for all fitness and ability levels.
Whether you’re after a short stroll along the lake after dinner, looking for the perfect selfie spot with a view, or pushing your limits with a multi-day adventure, Queenstown can be your central base for all things active.
For the Snow Bunnies:
If you’re here for a Queenstown winter wedding then you should definitely check out the Queenstown ski fields.
Whether you’re an expert on the slopes, just learning, or happy watching from the cafe with a hot chocolate or mulled wine in hand, it’s a uniquely Queenstown experience you don’t want to miss!
For the Golf Lovers:
Queenstown is known for its world-class golf courses, and even hosting the annual NZ Open in March.
Whether your Queenstown Wedding crew just wants to grab some rental gear and go for a cheap and cheerful 9-holes or check out the country’s premier courses, there’s literally something for everyone here.
For the Party Animals:
The Queenstown nightlife scene is absolutely buzzing!
There are floating bars on boats, hidden underground dance floors, quiet nooks to sip cocktails, live music played loud, and even an ice bar where absolutely everything including your drink cup is made of ice!
We hope you’ve got some ideas for what to do during your Queenstown wedding holiday and we can’t wait to see you here!
