Witness nature putting on a brilliant show during a self-guided bike ride from Arrowtown to Queenstown. After checking in, in the Queenstown CBD, you will meet your local driver who will take you on a 25 minute scenic drive to Arrowtown. Once there, you'll get fitted to your bike and given a map, safety briefing and all the trail tips needed. You're most welcome to spend some leisure time exploring the charming historic village of Arrowtown, perhaps grabbing a coffee or brunch before setting off on your adventure. You'll follow the Arrow River Bridges Trail toward Queenstown, an undulating path with some uphill sections, but is mostly downhill. As you cruise along the path, it won't be hard to admire some of the most magical views in New Zealand, from river gorges, mountains and scenic bridges. Be sure to stop off along the way to truly drink up the atmosphere.

You've got all day to make it back to Queenstown, so make it as relaxed or upbeat as you like. You'll be riding along a purpose-built riding trail the entire way, so you won't ever have to compete with any vehicles. If you're feeling energetic, you may like to take a diversion to the Kawarau Bungy Bridge, or visit a Gibbston Winery for a quick lunch, before following the trail along the Kawarau River back to Lake Wakatipu and into our Queenstown shop.
