Ride to Gibbston Valley wineries on a self-guided bike tour from Queenstown that includes everything you need for a day of exploring. With a van to meet you at the start and finish, you can choose the distance you ride, stopping at some of the taverns, cafes, and eight wineries along the route. You’ll have the option to be off the road for much of the day, with access to the scenic Arrow River Trail, Miners Trail, and Gibbston River Trail, enjoying great views of the vineyard-filled Gibbston Valley.
What to Expect
This full day self-guided Bike The Wineries Tour begins with a pickup from our central Queenstown meeting point and a scenic and informative transfer to the quaint historic gold-mining village of Arrowtown.

After bike fitting, a trail and winery briefing and a few local tips from our knowledgeable driver/guide, you free to enjoy brunch or a coffee at one of the many great cafes or just jump straight into your self-guided ride along the beautiful Arrow River Trail till it meets the Kawarau River, ride the original Miners Trail that crosses the Kawarau Suspension Bridge, the home of the world famous bungy jump and the beginning of the Gibbston Valley of vines.

From Bungy you continue on to bike at your leisure the Gibbston River Trail using our informative trail map to visit as many of the 6-plus wineries, cheesery and micro brewery linked throughout this easy riding trail.

Enjoy a relaxed lunch stop en-route or picnic at one of the many wineries along the way.

At the end of your day exploring the wineries, we'll pick you up from Gibbston Tavern, or another prearranged winery - just call us if you choose to bike further down the valley and we'll collect you for your relaxing vehicle transfer back to Queenstown. It couldn't be easier - and we'll even pick up any wine purchases you make throughout the day!

Distances biked vary from 9.5 miles to 13.75 miles (15kms to 22kms). All trails are purpose built, easy to moderate grade and off-road, with only direct road crossing between wineries.

Didn’t want to but loved it

I don’t like exercise. But someone suggested a battery bike and I was away. Awesome scenery. Easy ride thanks to battery. Very impressed with the service. Highly recommend!

Brilliant day out

We started in Arrowtown and followed the Arrow river then into the Gibbston Vally. Loved all our stops and Lisa and Steve run a well organised business with flexibility on pick points at the end of the day.
