We will pick you up from your accommodation at 11am and return you mid-afternoon.
We drive you just 20 minutes to Gibbston wine region - the gateway to Queenstown, Adventure capital of New Zealand (and some say the World!).
We will pick you up at your Queenstown accommodation or the surrounding area about 11.00 am. Then fit you to a very cool and comfortable bike to cruise down the valley.
We supply for you:-
- small picnic snack made with love from Provisions cafe Arrowtown
- very cool comfortable bike
- three Cellar door visits and wine tastings
- return transport to your accommodation about 3.00 pm.
You will need:-
- a light Jacket
- a bottle of water
- comfortable clothes and shoes for riding
We start by riding on the Gibbston back roads checking out some of the eclectic wineries. Along the way we will stop among the vines with a stunning view over the valley for a simple yet very tasty picnic lunch supplied by Provisions of Arrowtown.
This tour will appeal to anyone with a sense of fun and adventure - all we expect is that you can ride a bike. There is a bit of peddling but you don’t need to be a super athlete, just feel the need for fun and fresh air.
The bikes are a cruiser style bike – a modern take on an old bike with big soft seats, large easy rolling wheels and only three gears! (don’t worry, we've tested it, and the bikes work a treat). Check out our Schwinn Coffee or Cream bikes in the pictures gallery.
Knowledgeable local guides will guide you through the vineyards with a couple of wine tastings along the way - of course!
The Gibbston River Trail has been a labor of love for a group of passionate and dedicated Gibbston locals who recently achieved their dream when it opened. It is now part of Nga Haerenga, a NZ government sponsored cycle trail network which allows anyone to appreciate NZbybike.
Please note that the Cycle de Vine tours are seasonal and operate from early October until mid-May.
