Mountain biking near Queenstown, South Island, New Zealand.

Winning tip: Mountain biking, New Zealand

There is an almost infinite list of outdoor activities for any ability in Queenstown, South Island. The hills surrounding Lake Wakatipu (pictured above), which provide incredible ski runs during winter, reveal endless kilometres of mountain bike trails in summer. With a good selection of bike-hire options in the town itself, I went for Vertigo Bikes, which offers half-day/five-hour full suspension bike hire for $79 (£42). It also provides recommendations for local downhill trails and cross-country rides all within half an hour’s ride of the town centre. There is a wide range of accommodation in the town.
