SLED­DING IN THE SOUTH­ERN ALPS

Townsville Bulletin - Townsville Eye - - Escape -

Queen­stown is the ul­ti­mate win­ter won­der­land, so it’s easy to over­look its year­round ap­peal. Sum­mer is prime time for al­fresco ad­ven­ture. With the sun ris­ing at 5am and set­ting around 10pm, you score way more day­light for your dol­lar. Here are some ideas to make the most of it: Just “over the hill” at Cardrona, Un­der­Dog’s sled­ding tours pro­vide a pinch-me win­ter ex­pe­ri­ence in the snowy South­ern Alps, but you don’t have to miss out if you visit in the warmer months. The ex­pe­ri­enced (and adorable) team of Alaskan huskies, Siberian huskies and Alaskan mala­mutes will take you tear­ing through the trails of Cen­tral Otago in wheeled carts spe­cially de­signed for sled­ding with­out snow.
