Fly around the exhilarating luge course high above Queenstown, and enjoy majestic views of the local landscape. Ascend the peak aboard the Skyline Gondola, and then catch the 2-man chairlift to the top of the track, where you can launch your luge into the turns and tunnels of the thrilling trail.

The Skyline Gondola is a Queenstown icon. Head up the steepest cable car in the Southern Hemisphere to the summit of Bob’s Peak. Here, meet the 2-man chairlift that accesses the luge course. At the top, pick up your specialised cart, and prepare to propel yourself down the mountain.

There are 2 tracks to choose from. The Blue Track is the more leisurely option with gentler gradients but still features the excitement of tunnels and dips, which is perfect for younger riders or those with less extreme-sports experience. Or, go for the adrenaline-pumping Red Track. With banked corners, steeper inclines and more pronounced dips, this is the option for the extreme rider. Following your luge ride, enjoy the facilities at the Skyline Gondola summit station before your return to Queenstown.
