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!

New Zealand is such a beautiful country with such a diverse landscape. The hike in Abel Tazman was a highlight for me. Very beautiful. Also the time at Lake Manapouri and Te Anau both were so nice. The Queenstown time was wonderful with a beautiful drive up to Paradise along the lake as well as a wonderful meal and time atop the gondola. And of course Keiteriteri with its hikes and boat shuttle were so special. Your recommended stops at Pancake rocks and the Moreaki boulders were very interesting. The time in Rotorua was a special surprise with the village tour and meal a real highlight for us.
Thank you again for a wonderful trip and experience in your beautiful country. We hope to come back so if you ever want to e-mail us NZ travel information feel free to do so.
