What better way to immerse yourself in Queenstown’s magnificent scenery than getting out there and being a part of it!
The walking and biking options in the Queenstown region are vast. Whether you’re looking for short walks, day hikes, cross-country mountain biking, downhill biking or even heli biking, Queenstown will have an option for you.
Launched in 2012, the Queenstown Trail has opened up a 110km network of easy to intermediate gradient trails linking Queenstown Bay, Frankton, Lake Hayes, Arrowtown, and Gibbston’s ‘valley of vines’. The trail follows pristine rivers, lakes and mountain ranges as well as passing by iconic Queenstown experiences such as bungy jumping, jet boating and wine tasting. The trail can be cycled guided or unguided, has an easy to intermediate gradient and can be cycled as a whole or in sections depending on time and preference.
While there are plenty of independent walks you can do in the Queenstown region guided tours are available and a great way to get off the beaten track with the added bonus of local expert knowledge on the region, native plants and wildlife.
