Location: Queenstown

Queenstown, known for its Hobbits—much of the Lord of the Rings trilogy was filmed there—offers breathtaking beauty and adrenaline-pumping thrills. Kayaking, bungee jumping, jetboating, white-water rafting, hiking, and skiing are popular activities here.

Milder explorers can take a peaceful sail around adjacent Milford Sound, which is part of the Fiordland National Park World Heritage area, or sample South Island pinot noir at one of the region’s 75 wineries.
