If you’ve less time, but want to get off-road on your mountain bike, then we highly recommend joining us on a 5-day mountain biking tour through New Zealand’s Central Otago. This MTB tour might be short, but it certainly doesn’t lack in diversity, thrills and challenge!We start the tour in Queenstown – the adventure capital of New Zealand. The tour finishes here too, so remember to allow yourself a little extra time at the end to do those activities you procrastinated about before the tour started. Queenstown has something for everyone, adrenaline seeker or not! For those looking for adventure in Queenstown consider bungy jumping, jet boating, whitewater rafting, river surfing or canyon swinging. For those who like life in the slower lane there’s anything from gondola rides, art, culture, heritage, shopping, spas and the inevitable cafe… to family restaurants and high-end dining.
On tour, the Central Otago Mountain Biking Getaway knows no bounds when it comes to adventure and excitement. As well as Queenstown, you’ll ride lakeside Wanaka, and historic gold-mining towns like Arrowtown and Clyde.
As an intermediate to experienced mountain biker you’ll ride single trails, gravel roads and 4WD tracks over alpine passes, alongside sparkling lakes, and through farmland and river valleys. You’ll also explore a mountain bikers’ playground built on a mountain top.For more information, see our 5 Day NZ Mountain Biking Tour (Central Otago), or our range of NZ mountain biking tours.
