Wet Weather Activities In Queenstown

Queenstown is known as the Adventure Capital of the World, however, on wet weather days, the activity list might seem limited, to the untrained eye.

Queenstown locals will be the first to tell you that rain definitely doesn't mean that you have to sit around inside, though! We are lucky that, over the last few years, the number of rainy day activities available in Queenstown that are actually fun for adults to do, has increased a lot.

Here is our list of Indoor and Outdoor activities that aren’t affected by rain, that we really enjoy, in Queenstown.
