The Best Time to Travel

It is quite astonishing how many visitors come to Queenstown during our Summer months - December through to February. Please don't misunderstand, Queenstown is beautiful in Summer: nice and warm, not too hot, but still very spectacular. But what about the other seasons, Spring and Autumn? If you ask me, those 2 seasons are even more awesome.

Winter is incredible, too. The mountains covered in all this beautiful snow and swarms of people come here to celebrate the Queenstown Winter Festival. I still believe Spring and Autumn are special - most of our customers who can compare the seasons as they traveled at least twice to Queenstown (and in particular visited Skippers Canyon several times) confirm my believe.

In Spring, everything seems to wake up again, which is so nice to experience. See my other Blog entry.
In Autumn, the colors in the canyon are beyond description - just out of this world.


Visitors, who joined our tour into Skippers Canyon often say that Autumn is simply breathtaking. The colors as shown in the pictures above are real. The orange comes from the Larch Trees (which should not be there, as it is not a native tree). Then add the blue color of the Shotover River and a little bit of sunshine - and there you have it: the most unique outdoor cafe.

In Spring and Autumn, we usually have smaller groups of visitors travelling with us. Which means that we have a bit more time to enjoy this very scenic and historical attraction in the back country of Queenstown.
