departing Queenstown!


About us

HeliBike NZ has been sharing Queenstown's backcountry with mountain bikers from around the world since 2001. Founded by Greg McIntyre and now owned by Henry van Asch- former downhill mtb champion and co-founder of AJ Hackett Bungy New Zealand.


HeliBike NZ has exclusive access to private high country stations and DOC land across five Central Otago, NZ ranges.

There’s a downhill to suit every competent mountain biker -from natural trails, sheep tracks, steep, technical rock, undulating mountains, grass slopes to 4WD trails.

Experienced local guides will take you on a riding adventure you’ll never forget.


Choose a guided tour on 'top of the range' e-bikes

or access via helicopter so we can show you our playground from high above before decending through epic alpine landscapes.

"What an adventure! Mountain top to valley floor in breathtaking scenery – there’s no biking experience quite like it. The local guides are super friendly and adapted the tracks to suit our skill level perfectly. Great way to experience pure NZ and get away from the crowds."
