There are many who believe that Queenstown, New Zealand, is the adventure capital of the world. Whether or not you agree, one thing is for sure and that is that there is so much adrenaline pumping adventure available in this small remote town.
You wont be in Queenstown long before you see, if you look up, parachutes descending, apparently onto the town. With its steep hill behind, accessible by Gondola, Queenstown is ripe for the parapenters.
But its not only Queenstown itself. Nearby there is also Coronet Peak. A winter playground normally (read skiing and snowboarding), in summer it too is used for launching hang-gliders and parapenters.
