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
What a trip!!. We have had a wonderful time in New Zealand and thank you so much for all the arrangements which all worked generally very well with very few exceptions. As we only got back today just wanted to say thank you to you and all your staff. When I have got over the jet lag I will give you a full report of our visit with what we liked and the very few bits that worked less well for us. The weather was pretty kind to us particularly in the North Island but even in the South we had it a lot better than you experienced in January.

Full report later but just thanks for now.
