Bike The Wineries - Full Day Self-Guided Tour - Around The Basin Bike Queenstown

Enjoy an active winery tour on our full day self guided Bike The Wineries Tour as you explore the wine region of Gibbston at your leisure!

Highlights

  • Explore the Gibbston wine region by bike at your own pace
  • Visit the quaint village of Arrowtown and take to the picturesque Arrow River Bridges Trail
  • See the Kawarau River and cross over the historic suspension bridge - home of the first Bungy!
  • Stop at many award winning wineries, a cheesery and brewery along the way
  • Receive valuable trail knowledge and information from our expert team
  • Total biking distance is your choice from 15 - 22kms

Your journey will begin with a scenic and informative transfer to the quaint village of Arrowtown which is steeped in rich gold-mining history.

Our local, knowledgeable team will fit you to your bikes and provide an entertainment briefing of your adventure ahead.

Enjoy a coffee at one of the many cafes or get straight on your bike and get ready to take to the picturesque Arrow River Trail. You'll see the mighty Kawarau River and cross over the historic suspension bridge - now home to the Bungy, on the original Miners Trail.

From here you can ride the scenic Gibbston River Trail and visit the many award-winning wineries, a cheesery and brewery that are linked through this easy riding trail.

All trails are purpose-built, easy to moderate grade and off-road, with only direct road crossing between wineries.

Relax knowing that you only have to bike in one direction (no biking back to Arrowtown in a head wind!) and your return transport to Queenstown is taken care of. We'll even collect any wine purchases for you.

Wineries en route are:

• Chard Farm

• Gibbston Valley Winery

• Gibbston Cheesery

• Peregrine Wines

• Gibbston Tavern

• Rockburn

• Kinross

• Cargo Brewery

• Mt Rosa Winery

Great day out.

Really great trip. Good explanation of bikes and the trail. We were given 2 maps (1 for the general trails and 1 for the wineries). Recommend upgrading to the electric bike. It is doable on a regular bike but hills are definitely easier with e bike (especially after a glass of wine). Made it round 3 vineyards. Peregrine was my favourite wine and Kinross did the best tasting (very informative). Great that the wine is collected for you at the end of the day rather than carrying it round. They were good enough to drop me at lake Hayes on the way back. Only improvement would be bells on the bike (shared trails). Highly recommend this trip.
