Queenstown: Half-Day Guided Ebike Wine Tour

4. Queenstown: Half-Day Guided Ebike Wine Tour

This half-day adventure begins from the town center and transfers you to Arrowtown. From there you will set off with a local guide and a fully kitted ebike for a one-of-a-kind ride through the Wakatipu Basin. This gentle track winds its way through quiet river valleys, down quaint country lanes, and over impressive suspension bridges. As you enter the Gibbston Valley, enjoy a break at the historic Kawarau Bridge and visit the World Home of Bungy. The ride continues along the strikingly blue Kawarau River and through lush vineyards. The reward comes at the Kinross Cellar door where you will end the day sipping boutique Gibbston wines. The trail is easy and hard-packed, perfect to explore on an ebike. Unique in Queenstown, these bikes are built to keep the trip scenic, comfortable, and fun. The ebikes are “Dutch Style”; upright with a taller frame and a riding position that gives greater comfort and visibility. They are easy to ride, simple to operate, and allow for as much or as little effort as the rider wants to exert. They are also fitted with panniers for gear and any purchases along the way. Mudguards to keep the rider clean and fresh. This guided tour covers all the bases: a fully kitted ebike with panniers, water, snacks, wine tasting, guide, and vehicle support at designated points along the trail. This tour is perfect for those who want to get out and get active (but not too active) and finish the day tasting some delicious regional wines.

based on 5 reviews

Great service provided by the company. The pickup and drop offs along with maps, water and info about the local area sets them apart from other bike hire companies who just lease bikes. I highly reccomend this to others. The bike trail that was recommended to me was spectacular and I was regularly stopping to take scenic photos.

Cruised down the river track, laughing as the e bikes helped with the hills, maxed them out on the flat, wobbly bridge was a bit scary, checked in at the G valley winery then enjoyed the terrain back to Queenstown, finished with a well deserved cocktail, brilliant day.

Absolutely fantastic day, very well organised and would certainly recommend.

Jay was an awesome guy, had a great time on our honeymoon!

We had a great day and the drivers were really friendly.
