Explore our wineries, mountains and trails on a guided bike tour

Bike tours in Queenstown are the most varied and exciting in New Zealand. 

Tours range in length from half day trips to multi-day adventures, and there are bike tours for all ages, abilities, and budgets. Hire a bike and take a self-guided bike tour or splash out on heli-biking. 

Bike the wineries with a wine tour from Queenstown or Arrowtown. Ride beside the turquoise waters of the Arrow and the Kawarau Rivers, past the Kawarau bridge bungy and into Gibbston Valley wine country. The Gibbston River Trail passes seven wineries, so you’ll have plenty of opportunities to rest your legs and sample local vintages. 

Try e-biking for yourself, with electric mountain biking, an e-bike tour of the top of the lake around Glenorchy and Paradise, or an e-bike wine tour. You can even try a heli-e-bike tour and experience private trails on Queenstown high country stations, complete with a gourmet picnic lunch. 

Other heli-bike tour companies will fly you into the backcountry to tackle narrow winding tracks and off-road riding through tussock country. Or fly up to the mountains around Glenorchy, ride trails made by goldminers, and stay overnight in a mountain hut.
