Boat Bike Combo
The only Boat Bike Combo on Lake Wanaka
Join us for a beautifully scenic half hour excursion up Lake Wanaka passing the gorgeous Ruby, MouTapu and MouWaho Islands on route to West Wanaka. After departing the boat at the Rumbling Burn, we have a break to admire the scenery, organise our bikes and have a snack.
From here we ride back along the purpose built Minaret Track which has a variety of moderate uphill climbs, long cruisy down hills and very pleasant scenic flat riding. There is plenty of time to stop and take in the scenery and admire the natural beauty of this pristine area.
We stop for lunch at a very picturesque spot overlooking magnificent lake Wanaka. Your guide will go at your pace and delight you with numerous stories and facts about the area.
On arrival back at our van we meet our driver who will help our guide load the bikes onto the trailer while you enjoy refreshments and tell stories with about the magic time you’ve had.
If you love boats, bikes and scenery, this is a must do trip!
Riverside Mountain Biking Tour
A stunning guided ride along the banks of the Mighty Clutha River, from Albert Town to Luggate. Being the largest river in the country by volume, you’ll be blown away by its beauty and its power. This is a varied ride, with moderate ups (and downs), and beautiful vistas at every turn.
We’ll stop at some stunning spots so you can enjoy a cup of tea, (or coffee) and take some spectacular “selfies”. Riding time (with lots of photo stops) approximately 2 hours.
At the end of the ride we can drop you at the “World Famous” (in New Zealand), Luggate Pub, for some well – earned refreshments, or we can take you back to your accommodation. …. The choice is yours.
Exercise, amazing scenery, and a little adrenaline!
Easy Bike Tour
A gorgeous, easy grade guided ride following the beautiful Hawea River. Crystal blue water, endless mountain vistas, and easy pedalling makes this a great trip for people wanting some gentle exercise.
The riding is all on a wide gravel track which has been purpose built for walking and biking.
The track is mainly downhill, with a very gentle gradient. You’ll see lots of birdlife, rabbits, and maybe even some trout. Opportunities abound for photo stops (or a cup of tea) along this incredibly picturesque trail.
Our guides will delight you with local stories and little known facts about this area.
We will also give you some helpful pointers, if it’s been a while since you’ve been on a bike!
At the end of the ride we get to walk (or ride) over a beautiful swing bridge.
An ideal ride for the whole family!
