Lake Wakatipu, Queenstown, New Zealand

Lake Wakatipu enjoys a spectacular location in one of the adventure capitals of the world. Activities on Queenstown's 50-mile-long lake range from the spine-tingling (wakeboarding, water skiing) to the sedate (cruises aboard the vintage steamship TSS Earnslaw). Take a gondola ride up to Bob's Peak, where you can go mountain biking, ride a wooden luge or linger over dinner with the best view in town.
