Lakes & Mountains
Eichardt's Private Hotel could not be more perfectly placed to make the most of the extraordinary scenery that surrounds it. The hotel overlooks beautiful Lake Wakatipu, the third-largest lake in New Zealand and cruising across Lake Wakatipu on the restored T.S.S. Earnslaw steamship is a delightful way to see this magnificent scenery. Mountains border all sides of the lake, of which Mount Earnslaw is the highest, standing 2819 metres tall. Close by are the majestic Coronet Peak and The Remarkables, which provide brilliant skiing terrain for all levels.
Those who are eager to find their adventurous side will be well placed at Eichardt's Private Hotel, as Queenstown is one of the best places in the world to do so. Guests staying here can indulge in activities such as fly-fishing, hiking in World Heritage parks, mountain-biking, river-surfing, jet-boating, paragliding, skiing and other exhilarating outdoor pursuits.
