One of the premier tourist destinations in New Zealand is Queenstown, found on the South Island in the west. From here one has stunning views of the surrounding mountains and is just minutes from Lake Wakatipu - a landmark which will doubtless be familiar to fans of The Lord of the Rings trilogy of films as it featured in prominent scenes.
Hire a car in Queenstown and the stage is set for the scenic drive of a lifetime. Take in these immortal backdrops and enjoy the range of activities available in the many mountains in the Queenstown-Lakes District.
The Skyline Gondola will get visitors uphill in its many cable cars; enjoy the view as you ascend to the lofty heights of the region to see some spectacular sights below. Once you're at the top, daredevils can get the thrill ride they're looking for by undertaking the extreme Luge run.
The Queenstown Trail is another way for visitors to see the beautiful scenery in the area either on foot or by bicycle. By hiring a car in Queenstown you're just minutes away from any of these fun ways to spend your trip as well as see some unforgettable sights.

Please note that from 15 Nov to 15 Apr many cities are required by law to restrict the circulation to only vehicles equipped with snow chains or winter tyres. For a summary of the orders, please visit www.poliziadistato.it. To comply with the regulations, in specific locations subject to this requirement, vehicles are equipped with snow chains - the price is included in the rental charges through the cost of "Winterization Fee". At pick-up if you decide to bring your own snow chains or do not intend on driving on the roads subject to this requirement, you may decline the equipment by signing the appropriate release form. This change will be reflected in the rental charges. For more information on the fees, please click here. In all other regions, we recommend that you check before renting if your journey includes one of the roads subject to this requirement and therefore request the snow chains, if necessary.
