A non-guided day cycling option for experienced cyclists to explore stunning back country behind Walter Peak

With this non-guided cycling option, you cruise across Lake Wakatipu on board the TSS Earnslaw and then explore the very scenic Back Road on your own bicycle (or independently hired). The countryside is stunning as you climb through a golden tussocked valley into the rainforest surrounding the Mavora Lakes – home to several Lord of the Rings locations.

We provide you with a map and a food/beverage voucher that can be redeemed on board the TSS Earnslaw. Don’t miss the last cruise back though – there’s no accommodation at Walter Peak!

  • Includes return TSS Earnslaw lake cruise*
  • Quiet back country road through mostly gently rolling terrain
  • Suitable for experienced cyclists only
  • Moderate fitness recommended

*Please note: The TSS Earnslaw will undergo annual maintenance early 1 June 2020 - 5 July 2020). During this time departures do NOT operate.
