I am planing a surprise xmas present for my partner to go to New Zealand in February to do the White Water Rafting, Bumgy Jumping and all the other scary things. I was wondering if there is a train or what is the best way to get to Queenstown from Christchurch as we fly into Christchurch. Also, any recommendations on where to stay, shop, eat or what to do would be extremely helpful. My partner was in the bali bombing and planned to White Water Raft and Bungy Jump the day after the bomb but having lost 2 friends and injuring himself, he returned home the next day. I want to make this trip as special as possible for him (but also affordable for me to pay by myself). Any help whatsoever would be extremely appreciated. Thanks guys!
