Sunset on Lake Wakatipu – Queenstown, New Zealand

Queenstown, the unrivaled adventure capital of New Zealand, sits on the shore of Lake Wakatipu. Surrounded by mountains – the Richardson Mountains to the north, the Garvie Mountains to the southeast and the Eyre Mountains to the southwest, Queenstown has been transformed from a sleepy little lakeside town into a year-round tourist resort. There are many thrill-seeking activities for both winter and summer, but you can also find traditional and sedate activities like trout fishing in the remote rivers and streams or taking a steamship ride on the lake.
