Explore the quaint village of Arrowtown before you ride at your own pace along the stunning Queenstown Trail to the shores of Lake Wakatipu and into Queenstown Bay!

Highlights

  • Prepare for a great time out exploring the Queenstown trails!
  • Take your time exploring the quaint village of Arrowtown
  • Ride the trails that the locals love while enjoying stunning scenery
  • Bike at your own pace and explore where you please!

Hop on our 25-minute shuttle from Around The Basin's shop to Arrowtown. Once you arrive, we'll provide you with everything you need for this self-guided adventure ride: a top-notch mountain bike or E-bike with a helmet, a detailed briefing on the route, and our handy trail map for navigation. Take some time to explore Arrowtown, a historic settlement from the Gold Rush era, or grab a coffee to kickstart your day.

The journey kicks off by following the Arrow River Trail downstream to the Morven Ferry, crossing the river on breathtaking bridges. Then, you'll join the Twin Rivers Trail, tracing the Kawarau and Shotover rivers to the shores of Lake Whakatipu. Enjoy stunning alpine views as you traverse the foothills of The Remarkables mountains. Even the Old Shotover Bridge, standing for over a century, offers remarkable views of two ski areas.

The final leg of the journey is a relaxed trail along the lake's edge, passing cafés and a brewery before reaching central Queenstown. This ride covers wide gravel trails, graded 2 or 3, with a minimum distance of 35 KM and a few challenging hills. Plan for 3-4 hours of biking on average.

Confident riders with good fitness will enjoy this ride, but we recommend an Electric-bike upgrade for those tackling the bigger hills. Rest assured, you're in good hands with Around The Basin, Queenstown's most experienced bike tour operator!

So wonderful!

I decided to sign up for this pretty last minute and it was one of my favorite days in Queenstown! I had wanted to get out to Arrowtown and this was the perfect chance to see the town and then have a stunning ride back to Queenstown. The staff was friendly and helpful. The bike was great. And, the ride was so beautiful. I loved that it was self paced and you could make stops if you wished along the way. I have already recommended it to friends!

Around the Basin on a perfect day.

From booking to pick up, transport to Arrowtown along with a fun pre ride brief and directions from Josh we had a fun filled day. We had one ebike and three standard bikes all of which were in great condition and were able to return the bikes to delightful staff after a day we would all happily recommend.
