Solo girl going to queenstown!

Jump to last reply

Hello all,

I'm a 28yr old girl from Los Angeles who's finally going somewhere I've wanted to go since I was 10yrs old .... Queenstown nz! Since non of my friends are as ambitious about this as I am I'm flying solo. Trip is mid Nov to dec I have 2weeks & want to make it worth it.

I'm flying into queens & so far my plan includes going to Milford or doubtful sound first for an over night Cruise getting a fergburger then over nighting in Wanaka.. Maybe sky dive there then head to franz Joseph then maybe Abel Tasman then Blenheim then head back to queenstown.. Questions :

1.skydiving - queenstown or Wanaka ? Which is best ? Is there better?ive NEVER been I want it to be the best !

2. Is Abel Tasman worth going out of the way for during that time ? Is Blenheim ? Or should I just stay fairly close to queens ?

3. Hot pools? I've read franz Joseph has then now ...are they ok is there somewhere better ?are any of them worth it ?

4. I only have one night booked ... Going to try to wing it .. Great or terrible idea or suggestions

5. What have I left out that I absolutely MUST DO

Ive never had the opportunity to do anything this amazing alone i Thank you for any &all feed back!
