Guided E-Biking – the rides
The Four Lake Loop - a local’s delight
Explore some of the locals’ favourite spots on our epic Four Lake Loop ride. Start your adventure in Wilson’s Bay, navigating through 7-mile scenic reserve, up Golddigger, past Lake Kirkpatrick and on to the stunning Moke Lake. The trail then loops back down towards Lake Dispute, finishing with a descent of the fun flowy Phoenix trail. Or if you’d prefer, we can do this ride in in reverse if the conditions allow, or spend more time riding the many trails in 7-mile bike park.
Time: Half day (2-3hrs riding plus 30mins transport)
Quartz Knoll - Ridge Rider
Our journey begins with a scenic drive to the top of the Crown Range road which overlooks the stunning Wakatipu Basin and greater Queenstown area. From here we start our ride by climbing up a well-formed farm track towards Mt Allen (1492m) and are rewarded with more great views out towards the Kawarau Gorge and Mt Cardrona. The trail then follows the undulating ridgeline until we finally crest Quartz Knoll (1593m) for further impressive views across the rolling Pisa Range. From the pinnacle of Quartz Knoll, it’s a seemingly never-ending, but immensely fun, descent of around 1000m back down to the Cardrona Valley and a well-deserved beer in the oldest pub in New Zealand.
Time: Allow for most of the day (3-4hrs riding, 1hr transport plus stop at Cardrona pub)
Starting in the beautiful Gibbston Valley, we’ll take the rough backcountry road up to Coal Pit Saddle, passing through farmland and the remnants of old mining ventures as we head into the mountains. The summit of Mt Rosa (1322m) provides incredible 360-degree views towards Queenstown, the mighty Kawarau Gorge and into the back of the remote Remarkable Ranges. We end at one of Gibbstons many wineries or the historic pub.
Climb/ Descent: 1087m
Time: Allow for most of the day (3hrs riding, 30mins transport plus stop at Gibbston Valley pub)
