Get on your bike in QueenstownPanoramic alpine & views and easy biking make this remote Queenstown cycle ride a "must".
Here is an easy, remote half day bike ride with a big difference. It’s the Station to Station Cycle Trail operated by Southern Discoveries from Queenstown. You get kitted out with your bike and helmet at the Southern Discoveries office before boarding their sparkling Spirit of Queenstown vessel for the outstandingly scenic cruise to Mt Nicholas Farm.
When you arrive, there is an optional guided farm tour, before heading off on the 14km (9 mile) quiet back country road to Walter Peak Station.
The bike ride is unguided and even though it follows a public road, traffic is next to nothing, just a few farm vehicles.
Views are breathtaking! Take in the Southern Alps, Glenorchy and the Remarkables mountain range. When you arrive at Walter Peak, there is an optional BBQ lunch on offer before boarding the historic TSS Earnslaw back to Queenstown. Ride time is approx 1 hour 30 mins.
We’re adding it to our 19 day New Zealand cycle self drive itinerary for next 17/18 summer. Good idea!
