Half Day Bike Tour of Arrow River Trail

Select Date and Travelers
2 travelers
Enjoy our supported half day biking experience on the majestic Queenstown Trail, biking along the stunning Arrow River Bridges Trail on this incredible half day bike tour.

Meander along the Arrow and Kawarau rivers crossing 3 suspension bridges including the Kawarau Bungy Bridge, the home of Bungy, then onto a Gibbston Winery for a relaxing wine tasting before being delivered back to your Queenstown accommodation.

Ride independently and at your own pace with Around The Basin the company who provides the reassurance of vehicle and driver support at designated points throughout your 15km off-road bike ride.
  • Ride the Arrow River Bridges with a support vehicle
  • Cover 9 miles (15 km.) of mostly flat terrain
  • See a quiet and beautiful part of Central Otago
  • Includes bike rental, transport, and a wine tasting
What to Expect
Meet a driver at your Queenstown accommodations or in town (depending on the time and season of tour), then transfer to Arrowtown to start the Arrow River Bridges bike route.
You’ll be fitted with a comfortable mountain bike and get detailed instructions for the ride before setting out on a trail that follows the Arrow and Kawarau River gorges. Cross three suspension bridges as you ride, including one that’s famous for bungee jumping—pause to check out the jumpers along the way. Every 3 miles (5 km.), the support vehicle will meet the Arrow River Bridges trail so you can stock up on water or rest your legs.

The Arrow River Bridges ride concludes in the Gibbston Valley, called the “valley of the vines” for a landscape of lush, rolling vineyards. Toast the end of your ride with a wine tasting, then return to Queenstown in the support vehicle.

The weather was perfect; not a cloud in the sky for my ride! I met the driver in Queenstown, right outside the Queenstown SnowCentre, and he drove us up to Kawaru Bridge (where they have bungy jumping). The ride was mostly flat, though a few...More
