The Luge

A Gondalo takes you up a mountain In Queenstown that has an intersting view over the city. You can also take a ride on a luge, which isbasically a fun sledge on wheels running over a trmac surface - a little bit of fun.

We then drive towards Doubtful Sound - named after cCaptai Cookhtought it would be doubtful a ship could sfely sail in and sail back out again. It fact it's not a sound but a fjord (a long, narrow arm of the sea bordered by steep cliffs, usually formed by glacial erosion.).

Doubftful is the lesser known of the two main fjords in New Zealand, the other being Milford Sound. This will be the visit tomorrow. We head towards Manapouri to camp.
