All tours are fully supported with transport, accommodation, luggage transfers, Self Guided or Guided.

Most people who bike the whole length of the 186km trail allow themselves 3 to 4 days. (4 days is great if you are prepared to cycle for 4.5 – 5.5 hours a day at the average cycling speed of 10kmh.)

All tours can be fully customized to your needs. 4 days is a good time to do the trail in if you are active and enjoy getting on your bike weekly. If you want to spend less time on your bike each day, or even attempt the whole trail in just one day, Wild Rides can help make it happen.

The 3 and 4 day tours have the option to add an extra day to ride the Lake 2 Lake Cycle trail in Te Anau.

3 Day bike tour. From $509

  • Day 1 – Ferry from Queenstown to Walter Peak via the TSS Earnslaw. Walter Peak to Mavora Lakes 50kms. This is the longest day ride of the trip. We reccommend an Ebike for this section, unless you are up for a workout on the climb up Von Hill, then a gradual ascent to Mavora Lakes. A 550m elevation gain in total. Shuttle to Mossburn from Mavora.
  • Day 2 – Shuttle back to Centre Hill, cycle from Centre Hill to Lumsden (44km). The stretch from Mavora Lakes to Center hill can be ridden, but during summer you will be sharing a dusty gravel road with lots of vehicles. This is a great stretch of road to ride if you would like to do as many Km’s as possible, but for most people we don’t recommend riding this section.
  • Day 3 – Cycle from Lumsden to Kingston. 63km with a gentle downhill most of the way. Not recommended if a strong northerly wind is blowing, apart from the strongest bikers.

Mens and womens specific seats with extra padding, comfy hand grips, spare tubes, pump and tools as standard with all bike rentals.

Add a rear carrier and pannier bags for your ride. It’s a good idea to carry snacks and a jacket with you, even if you are on a fully supported tour. Keeping the extra weight off your back (backpack) helps a lot with reducing pain from sitting on a bike saddle.
