Explore Queenstown's stunning network of bike trails at your leisure.
Experience Queenstown at a more relaxed pace. Our sunny alpine climate is ideal for bike rides and there’s no better way to sightsee. Hire a bike and explore our glorious natural scenery and historic sights on two wheels.
Our stunning network of bike trails has rides for all ages and abilities and can be accessed from just about anywhere. Start with an easy lakeside ride past Queenstown Gardens, try the undulating Frankton Trail to the Kelvin Heights sculpture trail, or tackle steeper climbs through mountain vistas to Arrowtown. The Queenstown Trail offers 130kms of magnificent off-road trails on your doorstep, so there's no shortage of choice and you can tackle it in short chunks as you please. There are plenty of bike-friendly hotels too, located along the trail and some offering bike hire and storage.
Go at your own pace and choose a ride that suits you. Embark on a fully guided trip with one of our bike tour operators or if you opt for a self-guided ride, Queenstown bike transport operators can take you to the start of a bike trail or pick you up at the end if you don’t feel like peddling back. Bike hire options include e-bikes and half-day hires for self-guided tours.
Make time to stop at the craft breweries, browse boutiques and cafes, or sip a superb Central Otago wine paired with local cheese. Local bike tour operators can hook you up with an e-bike to tour the wineries or drop you in backcountry with a mountain bike guide for a truly memorable adventure.
