Imagine waking up to an beautiful vista, breakfasting on the waterfront, grabbing your bike and cruising across the lake on an historic steamship, riding a spectacular backcountry trail, then ending the day with a glass of award-winning wine and gourmet experience…Queenstown is the place to do this and more.
Voted TripAdvisor’s No. 1 Outdoor & Adventure Destination in 2010, Queenstown is fast becoming one of New Zealand’s most popular biking destinations. There’s a fantastic range of scenic cycling trails for all ages and abilities including short scenic tracks, backcountry trails, serious downhill rides, a jump park, and heli-bike options. This summer there are even more choices with the launch of the first leg of the Around The Mountains multi-day backcountry trail, a winery bike trail through the Gibbston Valley, and New Zealand’s first gondola-assisted ‘bike lift’ on Bob’s Peak which opens up a whole new dimension for bikers of all abilities - right in the heart of Queenstown.
And with the sun rising at 5am and setting as late as 10pm in the summer months there’s plenty of time to make the most of the warm sunshine and long twilights Queenstown is famous for. Enjoy!
