One of the best ski resorts in New Zealand turns into a place for adrenaline-pumping activities during the warmer months. Delightfully, Cardrona Alpine Resort in Queenstown offers New Zealand’s only mountain carting experience.
The sloops turn into the ultimate racetrack during the summer, where you can race your friends or family down the mountain in a three-wheeled, German-built mountain cart, against the beautiful backdrop of the Southern Alps. Wonderfully, no previous experience is necessary.
Sessions last for two hours, and visitors can ride a lift to the top of the mountain each time before zooming down the fun adventure trail in a cart. The mountain carting season begins on December 10 until April 3.
Plus, you can finish out the adventure by dining at The Lounge or attending a delicious alpine barbecue set if it’s a weekend night. Certainly, one of the coolest things to do this summer in New Zealand.
Tickets begin at $75 and children must be aged 6 or above. Read here for further booking information. Bookings are highly encouraged!
