Once in Arrowtown, you will be fitted to your bike, given trail tips, a map and safety briefing before you are set free on your adventure!

You may choose to enjoy a pre-ride coffee or brunch and a look around the quaint village of Arrowtown before setting off to ride at your leisure along the Arrow River Bridges Trail toward Morven Ferry Intersection.

What a ride!!

The trip from Arrowstown to Queenstown was everything that we had hoped it would be. We rented e-bikes and they were perfect and allowed us to really enjoy the ride all the more. Highly recommended.

Must do in Queenstown

Awesome and friendly people. Check the weather so you will have a stunning view. It was 35km in total and took me 5 and a half hours, to take some photos and just bask in the view every now and then.

Hard, exciting, Fun

Med - Hard trail rides through stunning landscape... absolutely breath taking. A little confusing when you get to Frankstown - needs to be better explained on the map. Overall - very fun.

Thanks Jamie - it certainly is a decent ride from Arrowtown to Queenstown, and stunning! The Queenstown Trail is always being improved and our drivers/guides always give info about the hotspots where people struggle with signage and direction - pleased you found your way okay :) Cheers Lisa - Around The Basin.
