When you visit the region between the giant Southern Alps and New Zealand's longest lake, you'll find a plethora of things to do in Queenstown. Popular with adventure tourists, the city is a hub for those looking for base-jumping, rock climbing, safaris, ziplining, and speedboat tours. If you prefer to relax while sightseeing, hop on a tour bus and check out the rising mountains that stand above the waters of Milford Sound, including Mitre Peak, one of the world's most photographed mountains. While in the city, you'll also find plenty of operators offering popular horseback riding tours up to the nearby heights.
