What people are saying about Wanaka

Collect at a central point. We were bad with 2! With a van brought to Lake Hawea. Got a bike there (with bottle cage) and map how to cycle. After 15 km (mainly flat or down) you will arrive in Albert Town. You can eat and / or drink it there. After another 15 km of Wanaka river you will arrive in Wanaka. Nice trip, super quiet and beautiful photo moments!

Top organized, ordered online the evening before, confirmation email and meeting point well communicated, easy guide, great route along the crystal blue river, the flat tire was replaced after calling 10 minutes later! thanks, that immediately brought our good mood back

Were told the upper Clutha River track from Albert Town to Wanaka was closed due to washouts. Detour was through suburbs. We went on the Clutha track anyway. First 50 meters was very rocky, rest was absolutely fine. So glad we did that part as it was the best!

top route, we had a flat tire, 10 minutes after our call we had an exchange bike, THANKS
