New Zealand, that pair of ecologically diverse islands in the South Pacific that played the science fiction-like backdrop for that epically majestic Tolkien trilogy, is at once untamed and refined, offering some of the world's best backcountry adventure as well as trend-setting cosmopolitanism.

Dive into the best of both with this week's Escape, courtesy of PacificIslands.com. Your package for two includes a land-only package for three nights in Queenstown ($999), and three nights in Auckland.* Or, opt for a air inclusive package and get all the same goodies for two plus roundtrip international and domestic airfare, and transfers ($3,389).** Air-and-land packages include two extra days for travel; land-only packages should be sure to book flights that allow for time-zone changes.

No matter which package you choose, you'll get a complimentary upgrade to a superior room at both the Copthorne Resort Lakefront in Queenstown and the Copthorne Hotel Harbour City in Auckland, along with two breakfasts for the price of one at both hotels (paid for at the hotel).

Queenstown claims the reputation of adventure capital of the world—try your hand at bungee jumping and decide for yourself. Or, test your nerves at The Nevis Swing (the world's biggest at 160 meters high), where you'll be suspended over a valley then released to free fall. After you've gotten your blood pumping, relax in the fresh mountain air at Onsen Hot Pools.

Once in Auckland, you can see the best of the city both by day and by night when you embark on a half-day Discover Auckland morning tour for two, followed by a dinner cruise for two around Auckland's famed Waitemata Harbour, which is the place to take in the twinkling skyline.

If you're still working up your nerve to bungee jump, there's no better place than here to try it: Auckland is home to the original 1986 jump. Try the SkyJump—New Zealand's tallest at 630 feet—where it takes a full 11 seconds to get to the ground.

If you're looking for excitement that doesn't involve swinging across a canyon on a wire, both Queenstown and Auckland deliver: You can hike, kayak, scuba dive, sit on the beach, sample wines, golf, and ride horses, all with the dramatic New Zealand landscape as your backdrop.

You might be Down Under, but you'll have a hard time topping this week's Escape. From the depths of Jones Bay to the heights of The Nevis Swing, New Zealand truly has it all.
