National park tips: See the Colorado River turn on itself like a coiling snake

Matakauri Lodge, New Zealand

Perched on the edge of Lake Wakatipu and blessed with one of the most iconic, "Lord of the Rings"-style panoramas in the country, Matakauri is close to Queenstown, the adventure capital of the world, but far enough away to be blissfully private. Six deluxe suites, sequestered in native forest, have oversized tubs with picture windows facing the lake's turquoise glacial waters and the snow-capped Remarkables mountains.
