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!

The weather in the south was great we had excellent weather for Milford and clear blue skies, calm seas at Doubtful. Couldn't have been better. Stewart Island was also seen in good weather, bit of cloud cover on the Paterson inlet trip but really good trip.
We're just having our last evening in Moorea - tropical rains this pm otherwise perfect.
Thanks for sorting out the car - the Thrifty staff don't like them at all! Suggest you instruct no SsangYong Tivolis for future clients! They really are dreadful. The Corolla however is a good car. Enjoyed driving it.
We also enjoyed our Farm Stay. Lovely couple, very friendly and chatty.
All in all we've had an amazing holiday - thanks for all you did.
