Queenstown, New Zealand (PRWEB) June 25, 2012

Leading New Zealand-based adventure tour operator, Active New Zealand, has announced they are partnering with Crowne Plaza Queenstown for the 2012-13 season. They anticipate their clients will be delighted to stay at the stylish, recently refurbished hotel for two nights or more while in Queenstown, the “Adventure Capital of the World”, during their small group adventures around the South Island.

Active’s clients tour New Zealand in groups of up to 14, accompanied by two local trip leaders who drive, guide and often cook for them on all-inclusive hiking and adventure tours from 5 to 14 days in length. All their New Zealand South Island tours offer one or more free days in Queenstown as a chance to relax on their own or sample the many adventure activities on offer, before continuing on to the Milford Sound and Mt. Cook regions.

Besides resting sore muscles and soaking up the lively atmosphere in the resort, clients often pluck up the nerve to sample some of the adrenaline-inducing activities Queenstown is famous for, such as bungy jumping, white water rafting, canyon swing, zip line canopy tour, hang gliding, sky diving, mountain biking and horse trekking to name a few.    

“We’re thrilled to be offering our clients one of the best hotels in Queenstown this season while maintaining our current prices,” says Jodi Narbey, a travel specialist at Active New Zealand. The Crowne Plaza Queenstown won a “Certificate of Excellence” from Trip Advisor in 2011 and has arguably the best location in New Zealand’s most popular resort town.

The modern hotel features dramatic views across Lake Wakatipu to the Remarkables mountain range behind and is conveniently located a flat, 2-minute stroll to the many restaurants and attractions in the heart of town. The rooms are comfortable and stylish and many boast a private balcony to enjoy the stunning views or direct access to a sunny courtyard. Amenities include a leisure concierge, 24-hour room service, sauna and a contemporary restaurant.

“We always share a lot of laughs on our trips so I know the hotel’s Bed Bar will be a favourite – they’ll all be hanging out on that plush daybed trading stories about their adventures in Queenstown,” says Narbey.    

“We are very excited to be on board with Active New Zealand,” says Crowne Plaza Queenstown General Manager Reinier Eulink, “Crowne Plaza Queenstown is the perfect fit for groups this size and our great location gives them flexibility and comfort in and around town.”
