After bike fitting and a trail briefing you'll set off biking the beautiful Arrow River Trail to the Kawarau River.

Amazing experience
Jul 2019 • Couples
Hamish and the team were amazing and so accommodating. Delivered and collected our bikes to and from the hotel, and gave us advice on how to get to Amisfield.
The highlight of our weekend away!
Thanks so much.

Fantastic view of the valley
Aug 2018 • Couples
The best way to see the valley and beautiful surroundings. The ride began from Arrowtown, with some beautiful river views. Enthusiastic staff who provided us with maps and clear instructions. The bicyles were in excellent condition, plus we were able to stop by three wineries along the way and have lunch as well. They will also pick up any wines you buy so you dont have to carry them with you. They are quit flexible and will pick you up at any winery you decide to end your journey.
Overall, highly rrecommend !

Best day in New Zealand!
Nov 2017 • Solo
I had an amazing day cycling Queenstown, around Lake Hayes, over to Arrowtown and to Gibbston Winery. What a way to see the beauty of Queenstown and surrounds. The scenery is breathtaking! On top of that, Lisa and Hamish were brilliant, so friendly, helpful and shared loads of interesting facts about the area. Thanks for a great day. Look forward to returning and doing another cycle soon!
