Boat, fly and hike or mountain bike. Gather a group of friends or family and come for a hiking adventure to explore one of our local treasures, Minaret Station.
Mountain Biking at Minaret Station. From your departure point, a short 30-minute drive around Lake Wanaka, you will take the Minaret Station boat across the lake, where you will meet your experienced guide from our sister company Southern Lakes Helibike. Your guide will take you through a full safety briefing and spend some time ensuring you are comfortable with your bike. After this you will be flown by helicopter, with your bikes to a track that suits your groups experience levels. This might be the stunning lakeside track at Minaret Station, or our downhill tracks starting right back in the valleys behind the Alpine Lodge. Your guide will tailor the day for you, during which you will enjoy a beautiful picnic lunch out on the trails, before ending up back at the boat in time for a cold drink and transfer back across Lake Wanaka.
