Shuttle from Queenstown to Arrowtown and embark on this unforgettable, self-guided bike ride. Ride along the Arrow River Trail, over the Kawarau Bungy Bridge, and on to the Gibbston Wine Valley.


  • Traverse a gorgeous 15 KM mountain-biking trail
  • Ride past picturesque river gorges, suspension bridges, and a winery
  • Shuttle transport from Queenstown to Arrowtown and back


This half-day ride package starts with a 25 minute shuttle from Around The Basin’s shop in Queenstown out to Arrowtown, one of the most scenic towns in New Zealand. We’ll get you sorted with everything you need before you ride the most popular section of the Queenstown Trail network. The 15km trail from Arrowtown meanders along the banks of the Arrow and Kawarau rivers. It crosses the rivers via six bridges – including three suspension bridges – and follows the original path used by the gold-miners of the 1800’s. The spectacular river gorges and glacially-carved landscapes provide plenty of photo opportunities. Once passed the Kawarau Bungy-Jump Bridge, the trail opens up to the majestic Gibbston Wine Valley. The first cellar door in the valley is only a short ride further on. You’ll have time to sample what this world-class wine region has to offer before your return shuttle back to Queenstown. This ride is easy mountain biking on wide, gravel trails. The trail undulates beside the rivers with a lot of small ‘bumps’, though there are fewer ‘ups’ than there are ‘downs’, as you will be heading downstream. It’s suitable for all riding abilities and a great option for families.
