Online travel community tripadvisor.com has listed 10 of the most popular outdoor and adventure destinations in the world.

1. Queenstown, New Zealand

The picturesque city of Queenstown, famously captured on film in The Lord of the Rings trilogy, seems to be attracting outdoor enthusiasts. They're flocking to the Kiwi town for adventure sports such as kayaking, bungee jumping, jetboating, white-water rafting, hiking and skiing. If breaking into a sweat is not your thing, then a quiet cruise through nearby Milford Sound, which is part of the Fjordland National Park World Heritage site, is an option along with sampling South Island pinot noir from one of the region's 75 wineries.
