Honey moon - keen single track mountain bikers

Hello we are heading to the South Island for our honey moon for 10 days over xmas/new years 2014 and would love some advice of areas that are great of biking. I understand Nelson and Queenstown are the best but unfortunately will only be able to do one of the two. We are looking at flying into Christchurch and driving down to Queenstown - flying back to Melbourne? Any help re: good riding spots would be greatly appreciated.

Welcome to the forum and congratulations on your honeymoon :)

Wanaka offers great trails - more variety and options than in Queenstown. https:/…

Welcome & congratulations! I think your plan is a good one. There is also good mountain biking in Chch - both on the Port Hills and in the nearby plantation forests.

You will have to come back another time to do Nelson. Kaiteriteri mountain bike park is great, and the tracks all around Nelson will have you riding for days.
