Get on your bike in Queenstown

Panoramic 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.

Arriving at Mt Nicholas

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.

Station to Station cycle trail

The bike ride is unguided and even though it follows a public road, traffic is next to nothing, just a few farm vehicles.

Station to Station cycle trail views of Lake Wakatipu

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!

What our clients say
G & I have just returned from our amazing honeymoon travelling both the North and South Islands. The itinerary was excellent, we saw some incredible things and participated in heaps of cool activities. Everyone keeps asking what our favourite thing was - we cannot pick just one - it was all incredible. The transport (car hire, Interislander ferry and TranzAlpine train trip) was simple and easy as you had already organised everything and the ferry and train were a fun way to travel. Being able to arrive at the motels and activities without having to book anything was heaven. The motels were all great, in particular Mount Cook. Again, thanks for all your help and we look forward to coming back in the future (and telling all our friends to come too).
