Skyline Gondola is an iconic way to explore the scenic surroundings of Queenstown, New Zealand. The Gondola Ride begins at Queenstown and goes over the picturesque natural landscapes and the cityscape before it ends at Bob’s Peak. The ride is also famous as the steepest cable car ride in the region. The Gondola can carry four people at a time and lifts them to an altitude of 450 metres above the town, from where one can get a stunning view of the surroundings.
Once riders reach the top of Bob’s Peak, they can then enjoy an even more spectacular view of the city and the mountains, especially the Coronet Peak, Cecil Peak and Walter Peak. Along with the panoramic view, Bob’s Peak also has some facilities that visitors can enjoy.
The Gondolas are wheelchair-friendly (electric wheelchairs cannot be accommodated) and also have safety provisions. Hence, it is a good activity for families to bond with each other as they explore Queenstown.
