Prepare for a great time out exploring the Queenstown trails!

Check in to that meeting point in central Queenstown where you'll be met by local knowledgeable guides and provided with valuable information about the trail before you head out on a scenic 25-minute drive to Arrowtown.

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. From here either take a diversion to the Kawarau Bungy or follow the Twin Rivers Trail along the Kawarau and Shotover Rivers to the shores of Lake Wakatipu and onward to Queenstown Bay where you can return your bike.

This is a great day out exploring Queenstown and the Queenstown Trail. This trail is a purpose built off-road biking trail. Average biking time is 4 hours, allow longer if you go to Bungy and if you want to enjoy stops along the way.

WOW!

This was the most spectacular and amazing experience!!! Staff were fabulous and very friendly, clear and concise. If you can, GET THE E-BIKE!!! I really wanted a good workout and almost chose to get the regular mountain bike, but I am so happy I got the e-bike. You still have to pedal and the hills definitely get your legs working hard. I would recommend bringing layers and a small first aid kit. My boyfriend had an unfortunate fall, but luckily I was equipped with some gauze, wipes and bandaids.

Challenging but a wonderful ride

Staff were welcoming and very helpful. I wasn’t sure what to expect and it challenged me as I did the ride alone, I recommend doing it with a friend! You will need the encouragement. It was a beautiful autumn day and the scenery was stunning with the added bonus of the autumn leaves in all their colourful beauty. I did find the trail directions hard to follow a couple of times and had to detour once with a wrong turn, probably because I was tired at that point lol. It was a highlight for me to be able to complete this ride and an experience I won’t forget.

Absolutely amazing!

This was such an amazing experience. The shuttle ride was great, with stories about the area and super funny. The e-bike was great, made light work of some of the hills. Loads of lovely spots to picnic - a great way to spend the day. Thanks so much!
