Awesome experience!

It was dangerous and tiring but was a good experience. The road was very bumpy and rocky and we got bounced around a quite a bit. We didn't bring enough water for the trip, and I think they should have water stops on the way. The view was breathtaking and the wind was good. Awesome experience!

Fantastic morning ride

Friendly, well prepared and efficient staff. Excellent quality equipment. Incredible scenery- we rode on a track along the Clutha River with snow capped mountains in the background, green paddocks and autumn leaves.Then around beautiful Lake Wanaka. I would highly recommend Wanaka Bike Tours.

Amazingly beautiful ride

We loved this so much! Was such a highlight of our trip, we had to stop every 10 minutes to take pictures of the most beautiful views! Bring your lunch and your swimmers, you'll want to swim in the beautiful lake :)

Simply beautiful

We loved this beautiful ride along the river from Hawea to Wanaka, with a stopover for lunch in Albert Town. Our advice is to take your time and take in the scenery. Maybe even a dip in the icy water along the way if the day is as warm as we had! A little exertion is required, even though it is a fairly simple ride, instructions are clear, and the bikes are excellent. We were exhausted by the end, but the final few KMs are an easy cruise. Take your time and wear sunscreen. Thanks for a great day!
