Onsen Hot Pools Experience – Queenstown, New Zealand

There’s no better time and place to relax, than at the Onsen Hot Pools on the last day of our visit to Queenstown, New Zealand. After a week full of activities and excursions, including the Shotover Jet power boat ride, a helicopter ride to the mountains, a road trip to Lake Tekapo, and the Milford Sound flight, we have decided to spend our last day in Queenstown relaxing, bathing in the hot pool.
