Not a Rail Trail Cycle Trail Tours

Not a Rail Trail Cycle Trail Tours

We don’t want just to show you where to ride, we want to provide you with a complete experience that allows you to love each trail as much as we do.

The new cycle trails in the lower South Island and West Coast are in our playground. Unless you know this region really well, co-ordinating and organising accommodation, food, shuttles and bike hire can be difficult. Riding days without a support vehicle, in areas with nowhere to get bike repairs, few shops and even fewer toilets, requires plenty of planning and a bike maintenance course! The alternative? Join one of our organised, small group, fully supported and inclusive cycle tour experiences and have everything done for you.

We offer fully supported ‘experience’ tours on all the Great Rides accessible from Queenstown, generally for groups of up to 10 people although we do cater for private groups of up to 18, depending on the trail. We have a number of different cycle trail experiences in these areas:
