Lake Wakatipu and Queenstown are mutually dependent and complementary. The lake has created the lake and mountains of the town, and the town has brought the huge popularity of the lake. The lightning-shaped Lake Wakatipu is New Zealand's third largest lake. It has a tortuous shoreline, surrounded by mountains and beautiful scenery. It is a must-see attraction for visiting New Zealand. To visit Lake Wakatipu, the most suitable point is Queenstown on the north shore of the lake. There are many ways to enjoy the beautiful scenery. 1. Aerial bird's eye view. Take the sky cable car from Queenstown to Bob Peak. The viewing platform on the top of the mountain is the best place to overlook the lake. The photos taken are representative of the scenery of New Zealand. You can also skydive and have a look, which is more exciting and cool. 2. Cruise by boat. You can cruise the lake by steamboat, catamaran, and speedboat from Queenstown Port and enjoy the lake and mountains up close. The lake breeze is blowing, the waves are blooming, the scenery is charming and refreshing. 3. Take a stroll around the lake. The shoreline of Lake Wakatipu in Queenstown is very long. You can wander around the shore at will. The mountains are towering in the distance, the lake is clear in the distance, the blue sky and white clouds above your head, and the birds and birds playing in the water, like entering a fairyland.
The Wakatipu Lake is super clear, crystal and beautiful! There are some amazing hotels along the lake. Cuz the lake is quite big, so there is water taxi for visitors to view the whole Wakatipu Lake easily. Also, there are so many water activities you can do, such as kayaking, jetboat and so on. What a great place!
