Starting with a 20 min scenic shuttle into Arrowtown. Let our guide give you a brief lesson into the history of Gold Mining and some intriguing facts about our exquisite town. Here, feel free to ask us anything about Queenstown or Arrowtown.
Upon arrival next to the trail, it will take us 10-15 mins to show you how to ride the bikes and how to get back in one piece. We promise!
Try any one of the dining options below for breakfast, lunch or brunch.
In your own time make your way along the Twin River trail across 7 bridges and 3 outstanding rivers. You will not find anywhere in the world like this!
The rivers are great for directions and our detailed maps and great signage mean you rarely get lost. If you do find yourself stuck, we are always on hand to call or text.
A fantastic choice for a family or an incredible date.
The ride is recommended for 12 years* and above but nothing stops the younger and older from giving this one a shot as Arrowtown is 400M higher than Queenstown so a fairly steady downhill gradient with minimal uphill climbs. Again, if you get stuck we can do a recovery shuttle for the same price as Uber.
*A Small E-bike is suitable for 145-150cm +
Want to do this but not sure about fitness?
Here's where our wonderful E-bike option is a God-send! Barely breaking a sweat and cruise along the river on a $3,990 2022 Giant E-bike. Probably the best rental fleet in Otago. Less exercise and more sightseeing. This option is only a $50 upgrade and 90% of customers choose this choice. ⚡
