On this edition of Kiwi Tripsters, we are ready to roll with some great summer escapes. Head west to Lake Brunner, dip into the valley of wine in Gibbston as part of a great holiday in Queenstown. Plus we check out some great summer reads to fire up your love of travel.
Kiwi Tripsters show cases Lake Brunner, the West Coast’s largest lake. Like Lake Matheson, Brunner’s mirror-smooth surface serves up reflective magic of the Southern Alps. With a wealth of hospitality offerings on the lake shore and wrapped in stunning trails through ancient podocarp forest, it’s summer holiday heaven.
Arrowtown’s status as a poster child for New Zealand tourism remains unblemished by the ravages of Covid. This is likely to be the last summer you can enjoy the delights of Arrowtown and the wonderful wines of Gibbston Valley, without wrestling with the crowds of international visitors. Seize the chance to enjoy the novelty!
Summer fun in Queenstown. Built in 2007, The Rees Hotel Queenstown is a sophisticated five-star hotel situated right on the shores of Lake Wakatipu, showcasing spectacular views across the water to the alpine panorama of the Remarkable Mountain range. Kiwi Tripsters talks to the Director of Operations at The Rees, Roman Lee-Lo.
