If you have already enjoyed a traditional cycle touring holiday, you’ll love the luxury tours we have created for you. Each day we’ll provide you with bikes, maps & directions. Spend a weekend or spend a week. Each day on your bike, explore a new trail discovering new landscapes, scenery & experiences
Imagine how relaxing it is not to have to pack your luggage every morning. Imagine returning to your luxury accommodation each evening.
Imagine, a gourmet breakfast each morning. Outstanding cuisine is a feature. Chef-Owner Jeanette is a winner of the NZ Vegetarian Dish Challenge

Do you believe there’s more to life than cycling? Consider our 'WineDown' Cycle Tour, a leisurely guided vineyard tour by bike. From NZ$139 pp
None of these adventurous enough for you? Enquire about the Stay-Ride-Around the-MountainTrail Package. Start your day with a scenic 45-minute cruise on the steamship TSS Earnslaw. This cruise takes you from downtown-Queenstown to the opposite side of Lake Wakatipu, NZ’s longest lake. Mounting your bikes you head off enjoying pristine lake & mountain views. In the afternoon allow sufficient time to retrace your route & return to Queenstown on the Earnslaw.
Road cycling? Some of New Zealand's most beautiful rolling lakeside roads await you. Quiet roads, stunning views..............notice we did say 'rolling' ...........not flat. Yes, it's true to say that if you live in a relatively flat area, we can certainly show you some real hills!
