Mountain Biking

Lake Wanaka's Mountain Biking

A thrilling sense of freedom. Whether it’s a leisurely cycle or a downhill single-track feast, you’ll come back invigorated and inspired by the magnificent landscape in Lake Wanaka, New Zealand.

Renowned for its breathtaking scenery, Lake Wanaka offers some of the most unforgettable road and mountain biking in New Zealand. There are plenty of family-friendly off-road trails by the lakes, rivers or through the woodland or join a guided bike tour to make the most of the region’s bike network. For the more energetic riders the exhilarating downhill tracks in Sticky Forest are a must or head to the Lismore Park jump park. Deans Bank Track is a purpose built mountain biking track and is great fun for whole family.

Find your own pace. With pristine nature all around you, the panorama of crystal clear lakes and rivers and rugged snow capped mountains will leave you exhilarated. Bring your own or rent a bike from the expert local bike shops. We’ll see you there. 

If you'd like to join up with the locals and go for a ride then check out the organised group rides over summer:
